PAWSsion Project is a dog rescue group based in Bacolod, Philippines. “We rescue, rehab and rehome,” reads its page description on Facebook.

The page became a target of a ransomware hacker in which an attacker threatens to publish the victim’s sensitive data or asks for payment before returning the stolen page or website to the owner.
