International Monetary Fund Hacked

Washington, D.C. based International Monetary Fund (IMF) was the target of a hacking attack, according to this report. The IMF provides financial-aid to countries facing emergency balance-of-payments problems and reportedly shut down their computers for several days. Oops.

The IMF's network link to the World Bank, the world's largest anti-poverty agency, was also temporarily severed, a move that IMF spokesman Bill Murray described as a "precaution." But IMF officials strenuously deny that any lockdown of its computers took place, and insist that no important or sensitive financial information had been affected.

Wow... sounds like they're trying to cover that up.
