Cyber crimes have become more common than anyone ever thought of. From Colonial Pipeline to Robinhood, reports of hacking have become way too frequent. However, the recent addition to the list is that no one dared to think: FBI.
Someone hacked the FBI’s email server and used it to send fake mails. Hackers used the domain name FBI.gov and related email Ids to send fraudulent emails, the number of which is estimated to be 100,000.
The mail contained news about a major cyber security issue that was being investigated by the FBI and could harm many. The email was claimed to be sent by the US Department of Homeland Security’s Cyber Threat Detection and Analysis Group.
The FBI has however claimed that no internal data was stolen by the hackers. Apparently a security misconfiguration was the reason behind this hack.
