Federal Reserve admits it WAS hacked by Anonymous as group 'takes revenge' for suicide of Reddit founder Aaron Swartz

The Federal Reserve has admitted it was hacked by Anonymous as the group 'takes revenge' for suicide of Reddit founder Aaron Swartz.

The admission, which raises questions about cyber security at the Fed, follows a claim that hackers linked to the activist group Anonymous had struck the Fed on Sunday, accessing personal information of more than 4,000 U.S. bank executives, which it published on the Web.

Swartz, 26, killed himself on January 11, just a month before he was set to go on trial in Boston for thirteen felony charges.
