Affected units were the War Development Command, NATO's Procurement and Support Agency and Cyber Training Centers, and the NATO Communications and Information Service. Hackers had access to all employees’ personal data, including on the portal where officials make important decisions.

This attack was a serious breach of NATO security, and security experts are working to restore the damaged facilities and identify those involved.
