Answer by Barbara Hurst:
The instructions on the SAR are pretty explicit - look on page 5 for guidance. COMPUTER INTRUSION: is defined as....... gaining access....... It does not mean attempted intrusions of websites or other non-critical information systems of the institution that provide no access to institution or customer financial or other critical information. From what you described, you may not need to file. But, if you think you have a real threat on your hands, and a contact, I'd go ahead and file. Can't hurt!
Answer by Dana Turner:
Please, oh please -- contact your local law enforcement agency immediately and file a report. This is likely not theonly occurrence. And a terrorist threat delivered by telephone is a crime that the FBI may also investigate.
