If you have an account with the firm, change your password, say security experts. But JP Morgan says it has ‘found no evidence,’ of compromised account numbers, passwords, dates of birth and Social Security numbers.
If you’ve got an account with JP Morgan Chase — change your password. That was the advice from security experts Friday to the 83 million customers of the New York-based bank whose accounts were hacked over the summer in an epic breach of security.
In an email to customers, the bank insisted they “found no evidence that account numbers, passwords, dates of birth and Social Security numbers were compromised. “We therefore do not believe you need to take any action related to your account.” Expert Tom Kennan at the University of Calgary disagreed.
