The Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe, an international election and war monitor, said Wednesday it had become the latest global institution to suffer a "major" cyber attack. Deutsche Welle reports this citing the French newspaper Le Monde.

OSCE spokeswoman Mersiha Causevic Podzic told AFP in an email that it "became aware of a major information security incident" in early November.

The attack "compromised the confidentiality" of the organisation's IT network and put "its integrity at risk", although it was still able to operate, she said.

The OSCE said "the way in which the attacker accessed the OSCE was identified, as have some of the external communication destinations".

As we reported earlier, U.S. Republican Senator Lindsey Graham said on Wednesday that Russia and its president Vladimir Putin should expect tough sanctions after cyber attacks during the presidential election won by Donald Trump.
