Reports: UN stayed quiet on 2019 hack

Jan 30, 2020 15:21 IST

According to reports, hackers managed to breach networks belonging to the United Nations in Geneva and Vienna last year, an attack that the organisation kept undisclosed. Leaked internal documents have revealed how dozens of servers with sensitive data were compromised, including at the UN human rights office, which stores information on autocratic governments and human rights abusers. In light of the revelation, high-ranking officials have admitted that knowledge of the breach was kept from them, while those privy to it expressed concern over the sophisticated nature of the attack. Reports have indicated there's still no real measure of how much data was obtained, or who hacked the servers.
