According to Bloomberg, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) is the one of the latest victim of a cyber attack. The data theft at IMF may be linked to a foreign government. IMF did not quantify the amount and significance of data stolen but security analysts believe that the attackers had broad access to IMF systems, thereby providing them visibility into IMF plans. As a result, the control of the World Bank’s network connection to the IMF, was  increased.
