By Ciara Hamagishi – 06/13/11

IMF suffered a major hack losing internal document and e-mails:

  • Faronics: Security BulletinStated that no strictly confidential information was taken in the breach
  • Temporarily had to disconnect their connection to the World Bank in Washington as a precautionary measure
  • Internal memo states that all employees were warned not to open e-mails or attachments that they were not expecting
  • Story warns that all companies need to be looking at all the hack stories and re-adjusting their security/staff procedures
