The U.S. Federal Reserve has recorded more than 50 cybersecurity breaches from 2011 through 2015, Reuters reported Wednesday.
Reuters obtainedÂ Federal Reserve records which cover cyber attacks that affectedÂ theÂ Board of Governors since it is subject to public records laws,Â Jason LangeÂ 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 ReserveÂ suspected thatÂ hackers or spies were involved inÂ many of the incidents, Reuters added.
There were no information on theÂ hackersÂ or on the consequencesÂ of theÂ attacks, Lange and Volz wrote.
