IMF Preps for Possible Cyber Retaliation by Anonymous

The International Monetary Fund is preparing to counterstrike against a possible cyber attack from hacker collective Anonymous Operations, a spokesman said Wednesday.

“We are aware of the threat, and have taken appropriate action,” IMF spokesman William Murray said in an email, according to MarketWatch.

Zero Hedge earlier today published a post linking to an Anon Ops  Twitter account that implied hackers would target the IMF’s website in relation to the fund’s work with Greece.

The online gathering has previously blamed the IMF and Greek government for the conditions of fund aid to the country. In a May 25 statement cited by Zero Hedge and attributed to Anonymous, the group said “the people of Greece have been left with no other option than to take to the streets in a peaceful revolution against the economic tyrants that are the IMF.”
