The Federal Reserve has been under attack by hackers since at least 2011, including four attempts it labels as “espionage.”
But it’s unclear if hackers have penetrated the fed’s security system.
Records obtained by CNN Money Wednesday list more than 50 incidents that were labeled as either “unauthorized access” or “information disclosure.”
But the Fed insists the internal documents only acknowledge that hackers tried to break into its computer systems not that they were successful.
The central bank released the documents after Reuters reported the Fed has detected more than 50 “breaches” of its computer systems from 2011 and 2015.
The Reuters report, as well as CNN Money’s reporting, relies on heavily redacted versions of those internal cybersecurity reports.
The Fed claims the documents don’t provide enough information for reuters to describe the cyberattacks as a “breach.”
