International Atomic Energy Agency Computers Infected with Malware

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), the United Nations organization that serves as an intergovernmental forum for scientific and technical cooperation in the nuclear field, has reported identifying malware on some of its computers. They said no data from the IAEA network has been affected and not compromised.

It is pointed out here that only those computers which are located in the common areas of IAEA's Vienna headquarters called the Vienna International Centre (VIC) were infected by the malware as per the presser.

 A normal computer can be infected by a USB drive malware by a visiting person or a third party technician.  Gas added, "The (IAEA) secretariat does not believe that the USB devices themselves were infected or that they could spread the malware further" 


The organization says that it is continually working on making sure that vital information is protected against cyberattacks.

Late last year, anti-Israeli hackers posted data online stolen from one of the IAEA's servers but the U.N. agency said no sensitive information regarding its nuclear inspections had been affected.
