The identities of more than 515,000 highly vulnerable people have been compromised in a cyberattack on a contractor used by the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), Axios reports.

The attack compromised the data of at least 60 National Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies around the world. According to the ICRC, there are no signs of information leakage so far.

Vulnerable individuals whose information was compromised in the attack include people separated from their families due to conflict or natural disaster, the missing and those in detention, according to the organization.

ICRC director-general Robert Mardini asked the unidentified perpetrators of the attack not to disclose, sell or otherwise use this data. The attack on the data of missing people makes the anguish and suffering of families even more unbearable, Mardini said in a statement.
