Right-wing think tank falls victim to security breachUS conservative think tank Heritage Foundation has been the victim of a security breach in which hackers obtained the details of donors and various sensitive email communications. A spokesman for the Heritage Foundation has confirmed the breach and stated that they are contacting everyone affected.
