The FBI is investigating what appears to be Chinese military-sponsored hacks of computers at the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation since 2010, sources told Reuters. 

During the security breach, hackers infiltrated dozens of computers belonging to the FDIC, one of the largest federal agencies that regulates commercial banks in the U.S.

Congressional staff reviewed the internal communications between senior FDIC officials.

It’s unclear how long the FBI has been investigating, but the probe is active.

The FDIC declined to comment on the investigation, but said “immediate steps” were taken to find the hackers.
