Malicious software infected some UN nuclear agency computers over the past few months but no data in its network has been compromised, the agency said on Tuesday.
Late last year, anti-Israeli hackers posted data online stolen from one of the IAEA's servers but the UN agency said no sensitive information regarding its nuclear inspections had been affected.
On Tuesday, the IAEA said some computers operated by the agency had been infected by malware during the past several months, without giving details on the possible origin.
The computers were located in common areas of the agency's headquarters in the Austrian capital, known as the Vienna International Centre (VIC), where IAEA staff as well as member state officials work and meet.
"Data from a number of Vienna International Centre visitors' USB drives (data memory sticks) is believed to have been compromised,"
