N.Y. Fed Says No Sign Its Bangladesh Central Bank Account Hacked

The Federal Reserve Bank of New York said there was no sign its systems had been hacked after Bangladesh’s central bank reported some money had gone missing.

There is no evidence of any attempt to penetrate Federal Reserve systems in connection with the payments in question, and no evidence that any Fed systems were compromised, a New York Fed spokeswoman said.

Bangladesh Bank said Monday in a statement on its website that funds had been stolen from an account by hackers, and that it had traced some of the missing money to the Philippines, where it was working with local authorities.
