STATEMENT OF THE FBI REGARDING fbi.gov E-MAIL ACCOUNTS

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The FBI is aware of a compromise to a commercial e-mail system which hosts a limited number of fbi.gov accounts. The e-mail service is provided by a commercial vendor. These accounts are used for non-sensitive, non-secure communications and do not impact secure internal and external FBI e-mail accounts. The FBI has suspended use of these fbi.gov accounts pending completion of a review of the matter.
