Skip to comments.Urgent: Checking and savings account information stolen from major banks
Posted on 08/27/2014 7:30:24 PM PDT by TurboZamboni
Word has leaked that JPMorgan Chase and possibly four other banks have been hacked. Details are scarce at this point, but the FBI and other government agencies are involved in the investigation.
The hack allegedly took place earlier in August and hackers have siphoned off huge amounts of sensitive data from Chase, including checking and savings account information.
Even more concerning, sources say that the attack goes "far beyond the capabilities of ordinary hackers." Given the timing, some security experts are speculating it was the work of high-level Russian hackers.
According to an inside source, there has been no increase in fraud at JPMorgan Chase since the hack. However, it doesn't change the fact that if you're a Chase customer your most sensitive financial information may now be in the hands of criminals.

How is this different from the IRS?
Russians probably don’t ‘lose’ all their hard drives and blackberries.
“...the FBI and other government agencies are involved in the investigation.”
So, what you’re saying is that we’re basically focked and pretty much on our own?
I thought as much...
I use a small hometown bank that hackers couldn’t find on Google Earth.
The Liberty safe bank is looking better all the time.
Sounds like more Putin terrorism.
Which comment # will say we must all keep all our $ under the mattress.
My coffee can can’t be hacked...
JPMorgan Chase could use the marketing slogan “We aren’t quite as nasty as Bank of America.” I wonder who the other four are . . .
Obama and his Criminal Organization(Administration) are probably helping the Russians out
as long as it’s a sleep number bed.
my sleep number is one million.
I have no money.
Russians will be Russians.
Headline says “banks”, but only JPMC is discussed.
What are the other banks?
Neither do I, but that didn't stop hackers from recently stealing my information (I believe from hospital records) and opening accounts in my name. Trying to resolve the problem now...
“I’ll be tracking this story, and will release the names of the other major banks involved in the attack as they become available. Be sure to stay tuned”
That would be a great way for the feds and the banks to explain a monetary collapse. “We are experiencing an economic cyber attack. Russia did it. Let’s go to war”.
The Community Health System, whose 4.5 million patient records were hacked, had not fixed longstanding security holes. A security expert said there were known bots and blacklists, some six years old. He said, “These infections are a strong indicator that systems have gone unpatched for years - a common theme in the health care industry. If an advanced nation-state penetrated this network, they probably didn’t have to work very hard to gain a foothold.” (Politico Pro , Aug 21, 2014)
