Hijacked DNS servers of St. Louis Federal Reserve

05/18/2015
The St. Louis Federal Reserve, one of the twelve banks composing the U.S. Federal Reserve, has communicated that, during late April 2015, attackers succeeded in manipulating the routing configuration of a DNS vendor used by the St. Louis Fed. No information about the attackers is available yet.

Although the impact on the daily operations of the bank are not clear, the St. Louis Federal Reserve has activated a reset of their users' passwords, who are also advised to update their passwords in the websites in which they employ the same user name and password.
