The FBI’s email system Got Hacked

The FBI’s email system was hacked to send out fake cybersecurity warnings. A flaw in the FBI’s website allowed hackers to use the FBI’s legitimate email address.

Hackers targeted the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s (FBI) email servers, sending out thousands of phony messages that say its recipients have become the victims of a “sophisticated chain attack,” first reported by Bleeping Computer.

The emails were initially uncovered by The Spamhaus Project, a nonprofit organization that investigates email spammers.
