WASHINGTON, D.C. (CNN) - Hackers have hit the Federal Reserve website.

The Fed released a statement saying the the security breach was brief and did not affect critical operations.

The government agency would not say what information was exposed.

But a Twitter account claiming to be affiliated with hacker group "Anonymous" says it's behind the attack and lifted the personal information of thousands of top bankers to post online.
