JPMorgan Chase & Co. instructs customers after cyberattack


Their names, addresses, phone numbers and email addresses were stolen. The largest bank in the United States, New York-based, affirms that the data breach not included account numbers, passwords, Social Security numbers or dates of birth. However, the stolen information still could be used in a variety of ways to rip off people in the months and years ahead. FBI is working with the Secret Service to determine the scope of recent cyberattacks against several American financial institutions. JPMorgan Chase & Co.which discovered the intrusion on its servers in mid-August said any unusual customer stemming from the data breach was not be found. “We have identified and closed the known access paths,” spokeswoman Patricia Wexler said. Customers no need to change their password or account information but they must remain warned. If unauthorized transactions occur, the bank must be informed to not charge the account owner. JPMorgan Chase & Co. previously spent millions on cybersecurity and now estimates that  will increase this investment to about $250 million annually  employing 1,000 people in the area.
