IMF targeted in serious computer attackIMF headquarters in Washington, D.C.

The International Monetary Fund says it’s investigating a computer attack.

IMF spokesman David Hawley says the fund’s computer systems are fully functional. IMF told staffers about it on Wednesday but hasn’t released a public announcement. The IMF wouldn’t give further details.

The New York Times cited unnamed IMF officials as saying the attack was sophisticated and serious.

The IMF is already facing a headache after the arrest of its former leader, Dominique Strauss-Kahn, who was charged with sexually assaulting a maid in a New York hotel.
