Hackers Are Always Watching

In our increasingly connected world, hackers are always watching and not even our biggest financial institutions are entirely safe. As Nicole Perlroth at the New York Times reports:

A number of United States banks, including JPMorgan Chase and at least four others, were struck by hackers in a series of coordinated attacks this month, according to four people briefed on a continuing investigation into the crimes.

The hackers infiltrated the networks of the banks, siphoning off gigabytes of data, including checking and savings account information, in what security experts described as a sophisticated cyberattack.
