IMF says identified files copied in cyber attack

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The IMF said on Thursday it had identified computer files that were copied during a recent cyber attack and has no evidence that information in emails or the fund's financial systems was compromised.

"We have identified files that have been copied and we are assessing the importance of those files," IMF spokesman David Hawley told a regular news briefing on Thursday.

"However, we have no evidence that information held in our emails, our financial systems or the fund's document management system have been compromised," he added.
