Fbi Investigating Hacking Attack On Jpmorgan

Recommended Posts

http://money.cnn.com/2014/08/27/investing/jpmorgan-hack-russia-putin/

The FBI is investigating hacking attacks on 7 of the top 15 banks, including one against JPMorgan Chase, according to someone with direct knowledge of the attack.

The extent of the damage -- and who did it -- is still unknown. A person who analyzed the attack said hackers used sophisticated, never-before-seen malware to get deep enough into the banks' computer systems to delete and manipulate records.

That could affect all sorts of bank logs, maybe even consumer or investor accounts. But the likelihood of that is still unclear. As for the damage, customer bank accounts are often insured by the banks in the event of a cyberattack.

The bank JPMorgan (JPM)said it has not detected "unusual" fraud activity at this time but is working with law enforcement to determine the scope of the breach.

"Companies of our size unfortunately experience cyberattacks nearly every day. We have multiple layers of defense to counteract any threats and constantly monitor fraud levels," said JPMorgan spokeswoman Patricia Wexler.

While the banks have plugged the hole that let in those hackers, they could have pried open other digital doors and might still be in the systems. That's according to the person with direct understanding of the attacks who spoke on condition of anonymity

Still at least the system could still be compromised and leaking data.

Two points:

1. when JP Morgan commits crimes against other people the FBI ain't interested.

2. If it actually happened, the Feds probably did it themselves, as part of the anti-Russia war propaganda.

Polonium in the tank was it?

No evidence for that, but he's bound to be responsible. The BBC says so all the time.
