The last virus that made it through the filters to my machine came from the FDIC. It wouldn't surprise me!

They are up now. Or at least I'm able to access. I double checked to make sure it's not a cached version.

I also was able to access the site.

They have a "Letter to Stakeholders" posted. Was this suppose to be "Letter to Stockholders" or is Stakeholders the correct term? If so, what is a "Stakeholder" (other than Buffy the Vampire Slayer)? I've not seen this term before.

FDIC does not have stock, so they don't have stockholders. A stakeholder is anyone who has a stake in the organization, its activites, and its future direction. In the FDIC's case, stakeholders would include both the general banking public and financial institutions.

Thanks Jim, I never paid attention to the term before. Guess you learn something new everyday.

Proposed BIS II talk about enhanced corporate governance to benefit "stakeholders".
