The International Criminal Court disclosed a cyberattack on Tuesday after discovering last week that its systems had been breached.

"At the end of last week, the International Criminal Court's services detected anomalous activity affecting its information systems," the ICC said.

At present, there is no available information regarding the extent of the cyberattack's nature and impact on the ICC's systems or whether the perpetrators managed to access or exfiltrate any data or files from its network.

The Court only revealed that it "Continues to analyze and mitigate the impact of this incident," focusing on "Ensuring that the core work of the Court continues."

The ICC is an international tribunal that investigates and prosecutes the gravest offenses that impact the international community, including war crimes, genocide, and crimes against humanity.

The ICC was established in 2002 after the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court entered into force, and as of March 2023, it has 123 member states.
