Hackers from Finland reportedly sent more than 300 emails to children of an elementary school in Oswego, USA with threatening messages, reported the US newspaper Chicago Tribune.
“An email sent to a group of more than 300 Oswego parents referencing threats at a local elementary school last month has been determined to be a hoax,” said the report quoting the Oswego police on Friday.
The police said the Federal Bureau of Investigation is helping officers confirm the email was sent from Finland and not from any local resident whose Yahoo Group account had been hacked and used to send the threats.
According to Oswego Police Chief Jeff Burgner, the threats targeting Southbury Elementary School students did not appear credible, but were enough to spur an increased police presence at Community Unit School District 308 schools, said the report.
Meanwhile on Sunday, a representative of the National Bureau of Investigation, Finland said that the Finnish authorities have not been contacted by the FBI in connection with the incident, reported the Finnish national broadcaster Yle.
