Reuters obtained Federal Reserve records which cover cyber attacks that affected the Board of Governors since it is subject to public records laws, Jason Lange and Dustin Volz wrote.

The central bank’s national cybersecurity team identified majority of the recorded breaches as “malicious code” while four attacks in 2012 were described as “espionage,” Reuters said.

The records further revealed the Federal Reserve suspected that hackers or spies were involved in many of the incidents, Reuters added.

There were no information on the hackers or on the consequences of the attacks, Lange and Volz wrote.
