WASHINGTON Feb 7 The Federal Reserve said on
Thursday it was still working to determine the extent that its
computer systems had been breached by hackers, adding that the
incident was the subject of a criminal investigation by the
Federal Bureau of Investigation.
"We are in the process of a comprehensive assessment to
determine what information might have been obtained in this
incident," said Federal Reserve spokesman Jim Strader. "We
remain confident that this incident did not affect critical
operations of the Federal Reserve," he said.
The online intrusion, which has embarrassed the Fed and
raised questions about the effectiveness of its security, was
publicized on Sunday by activist group Anonymous.
