The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) said it was hit with a cyberattack this week that compromised the personal data of “more than 515,000 highly vulnerable people.”

In a release on Wednesday evening, the organization said it discovered a “sophisticated cybersecurity attack” this week that targeted servers hosting the information of people who have been separated from their families due to conflict, migration, and disaster as well as missing persons, their families, and people in detention.
