Hackers hack the Federal Reserve

Posted: Updated:

Hackers have hit the Federal Reserve website.

The Fed released a statement saying the security breach was brief and did not affect critical operations.

The government agency would not say whether information was exposed.

But a Twitter account claiming to be affiliated with the hacker group "Anonymous" says it's behind the attack and lifted the personal information of thousands of top bankers to post online.
