An internal website of the Federal Reserve was breached by hackers on Tuesday.

“The Federal Reserve system is aware that information was obtained by exploiting a temporary vulnerability in a website vendor product,” a Fed spokesperson told Reuters. “Exposure was fixed shortly after discovery and is no longer an issue.”

The leaked information is speculated to be emergency contact information for thousands of U.S. bankers.
