External Email System FBI Compromised: Sending Out Fake Warnings

The external email system of the FBI was breached on Saturday, and started to send out emails with fake warnings for cyberthreats.

The emails originated from an @ic.fbi[.]gov email account, according to an FBI statement.

We recommend scrutinizing emails received over the weekend from this domain.
