Last July, hackers made it into JP Morgan Chase’s customer account database. In a recent filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission, the company disclosed the extent of the breach. It reported that the hackers had access to 76 million household accounts and seven million small business accounts.
That makes the attack one of the largest breaches so far. While hackers did gain access to those customers’ names, addresses, phone numbers and email addresses, JP Morgan Chase reported, “there is no evidence that account information for such affected customers – account numbers, passwords, user IDs, dates of birth, or Social Security numbers – was compromised during the attack.”
The other good news is that so far no money appears to have been taken from any of those accounts, and no suspicious activity has been observed.
