From: Brian Martin

Thank you for your prompt response. However, I am filing an appeal regarding the to my FOIA (1477887-000) which you have initially denied citing FOIA exemptions (b)(6) and (b)(7)(C) of 5 U.S.C. ยงยง 552.

Specifically, my request covers specific criminal activity that occurred via computer crime that was conducted across state lines, making it the jurisdiction of the FBI. A criminal investigation by the FBI would be pursuant to the agencies stated purpose, which claims it "is the lead federal agency for investigating cyber attacks and intrusions" [1]. Therefore, any records regarding the investigation of the group named 'Fluffy Bunny' would NOT "constitute a clearly unwarranted invasion of personal privacy".

Thank you,

Brian Martin
