A cyber attack on a large number of computers in the United States could be used as a warning for people to start using more secure software.
In a statement on Thursday, the Federal Bureau of Investigation said it was investigating a computer hacking attack on its computer network, which compromised personal information and personal data of more than 4.8 million people.
The attack targeted an employee of a computer software company, which was also compromised by the attack, the FBI said.
It’s not clear how widespread the hack was, but some of the information stolen was used in some of cyber attacks in recent years.
A few months ago, researchers discovered a large trove of data belonging to the United Kingdom’s National Health Service, which included details of nearly 100,000 people.
“This attack on our infrastructure is one example of the kinds of cyber intrusions we face today,” FBI Assistant Director in Charge Daniel Webster said in the statement.
“The threat is not new, and we have seen it before.
But we are more focused on preventing this kind of cyber attack from occurring in the future.
This is the first time we have found evidence that the attack was carried out by state-sponsored actors, and the FBI is actively investigating the attackers and their motivations.”
Webster added that the FBI’s cyber operations were designed to detect, disrupt, and disrupt the actions of criminals, and to prevent future attacks.
“Cyber security is a critical element in our mission,” he said.
“Our work is not over, but the cyber threat is now even greater than it was just a few months back.
The FBI and our partners have a long way to go, but this is a positive step forward in our fight to protect our nation.”
