JPMorgan Chase Data Breach Affects 76 Million Households

JPMorganChase

A massive cyberattack against JPMorgan Chase over the summer compromised account information of 76 million households and 7 million small businesses.  The company said that names, addresses, phone numbers and email addresses were stolen from customers who use the websites Chase.com and JPMorganOnline, as well as the ChaseMobile and JPMorgan Mobile apps.

On a positive note, JPMorgan Chase said “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 bank stated in a post on its Chase.com website that it doesn’t believe customers need to change their password or account information.

Customers however should carefully be on the lookout for unsolicited scam phone calls and emails from people posing as bank representatives.  If you need to contact your bank, always initiate contact by using the phone number listed on you bank statement, never respond to a request for information via an inbound phone call or email.
