Hackers who hit JPMorgan attacked some nine other firms: report



Reuters 45 mins ago

About nine other banks and brokerages were infiltrated by the same group of hackers who recently attacked computer systems at JPMorgan Chase & Co, the New York Times reported late on Friday, citing unnamed people briefed on the matter.

The report, which could not be independently verified and did not identify any of the victims beyond JPMorgan, said it was not clear how serious the attacks had been.

JPMorgan said on Thursday that names and contact information for some 83 million household and small business customers were stolen, making it one of the biggest data breaches in history.

The New York Times said the breadth of the attacks and uncertainty about the motives of the hackers are troubling U.S. policymakers and intelligence officials.

Representatives with the U.S. Secret Service could not be reached for comment on Saturday morning. The Secret Service is investigating the attack on JPMorgan.

It is enough to make you want to go back to cash for shopping. Seems they hit any major retailer as well as the banks. These banks and companies pushed the use of plastic and it is biting them now.

I have been using CASH except for some big ticket items. Yet all of my C.C. & debit cards have been used in the past. And they {the companies} never stop to think hey lets stop listing this as it hasn't been used in years.

Heck for my Kroger's gas Rewards one I filled out their survey I had to update my info. Pissed me off enough that I will go in tomorrow and moan & groan in their managers face.

Congress best start working and soon or this country is headed to the junk yard.

As if people were forced to sign up for credit and ATM cards.

Where is our vaunted Federal government protecting us from this foreign threat? Oh I forgot, the reward for failure by the Federal Government is to increase their power and payroll.

It's being reported that the Russians, (Putin,) did the hacking. He apparently is getting back at obama for those silly little sanctions obama put on the Russkies, that had no effect but making obama feel like he did something spectacular.
