Sodinokibi Ransomware Operators Targets Non-Profit Organization, National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA)

Sodinobiki operators have been lately quite busy in targeting large organizations, such as JN BankGaiedi.comBrooks International and many others.

This time they have targeted a non-profit organization, National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA), headquartered in the US. According to the Wikipedia (which we know is not the most reliable place to research!), the organization devoted to preventing eating disorders, providing treatment referrals, and increasing the education and understanding of eating disorders, weight, and body image. The National Eating Disorders Association organizes and sponsors National Eating Disorders Week. Also known as NEDAwareness Week, it takes place during the last week of February, and is “a collective effort of primary volunteers, including eating disorder professionals, health care providers, students, educators, social workers, and individuals committed to raising awareness of the dangers surrounding eating disorders and the need for early intervention and treatment.

The ransomware operators have shared the screenshots of the files they have been able to gain access, and are threatening to release them should the ransom payment is not made.

Update: April 4 — The ransomware operators have leaked the files of the company.
