The International Court of Justice in The Hague in the Netherlands revealed today (Tuesday) that its computer system was hacked. The court said that it detected unusual activity on its computer network at the end of last week. This caused a reaction in the systems that is still ongoing. The court's spokesman declined to comment on how serious the hack was, whether it had been fully resolved, or who might be behind it.

The court said it continues to "analyze and mitigate the impact of this incident" with the assistance of the Dutch government, which is also taking steps to strengthen its cyber security. "Priority is also given to ensuring that the core work of the court continues," the statement said

Last March, the court issued an arrest warrant for the President of Russia, Vladimir Putin, on suspicion of illegally deporting children from Ukraine. The Kremlin has rejected these allegations and the court's jurisdiction.

Also in Israel: a cyber attack at the hospital

A number of cyber attacks have also occurred in Israel in recent weeks. Today, Kfar Shaul Mental Health Center, the Ministry of Health, and the National Cyber System informed us that the hospital underwent a cyber incident. As part of it, a small part of the hospital's computer servers were flooded.

As a proactive measure to prevent the spread of the attack, all computers and systems were disconnected. Now the teams of the Ministry of Health and the National Cyber System are working to contain the incident, recover the systems, and assess the damage. As of this date, no damage to clinical systems has been detected.

The medical teams switched to a manual procedure and continue to provide treatment to patients.
