By: KDKA-TV News Staff

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) -- A ransomware attack targeted businesses in Pittsburgh.

Allegheny Health Network says someone infiltrated Blackbaud, a vendor that AHN uses to maintain its fundraising records and donor database. Blackbaud says no credit card information, bank information or social security numbers were accessed.

UPMC Children's Hospital was also targeted in the ransomware attack.

In a statement, UPMC said that no crucial information was gained by the cybercriminals.

"It was determined that the file accessed by the cybercriminal may have contained some of our constituents' general demographic information like name, address, or birth date. It's important to note that the cybercriminal did not gain access to credit card information, bank account information, or social security numbers. This incident occurred between February 7, 2020, and May 20, 2020," the statement read.

Other businesses that use Blackbaud have also been impacted.
