MIAMI – Dark web hackers recently stole data belonging to the Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Miami and forced the nonprofit to hire cybersecurity specialists.

The nonprofit organization experienced a cyberintrusion on Nov. 28 and law enforcement reported on Dec. 18 that the data was for sale on the dark web, according to the archdiocese.

“We have no evidence that the stolen data was sold,” Peter Routsis-Arroyo, the organization’s chief executive officer, wrote in a recent letter to the board of directors.

Routsis-Arroyo also reported that the Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Miami did not pay any ransom.

Detectives were asking anyone with information about the case to call Miami-Dade County Crime Stoppers at 305-471-8477.
