FBI investigating IMF computer hack, Pentagon says


The FBI has joined an investigation of a cyber attack on the International Monetary Fund’s computer systems, a US Defence Department spokeswoman said Saturday night.

“The FBI is working this with IMF,” the spokeswoman, Lieutenant Colonel April Cunningham of the Air Force, said in an emailed reply to Reuters, referring to an “active” probe. The FBI, the US government’s main criminal investigative agency, did not immediately respond to a request for comment, Reuters reports.
