FBI email hacked

Some FBI email accounts on a commercial email system were compromised, the agency said.

In a statement issued Friday, the FBI said it was "aware of a compromise to a commercial email system which hosts a limited number of accounts."

The accounts, on an email system provided by a commercial vendor, are used for "non-sensitive, non-secure communications and do not impact secure internal and external FBI email accounts," the agency said.

The FBI has suspended use of the accounts pending a review of the incident.
