JPMorgan 'Not Commenting' On Whether Obama's Personal Info Was Compromised In Data Breach
Darin Oduyoye, a company spokesman, told Business Insider in an email that JPMorgan was "not commenting" beyond their initial statement. JPMorgan spokesman Paul Hartwick added the company would not identify specific customers."To protect customers' privacy, we do not publicly confirm, deny or otherwise identify customers," Hartwick said.
According to the SEC filing, data from about 76 million households and 7 million small businesses was "compromised" in a recent cyberattack."User contact information - name, address, phone number and email address - and internal JPMorgan Chase information relating to such users have been compromised," the SEC filing said.
The filing indicated these figures were from a previously disclosed cyberattack."However, 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 this attack," said the filing. This statement would appear to contradict a New York Times report published in August that indicated hackers obtained "checking and savings account information" from JPMorgan in a "series of coordinated attacks." That same month, Bloomberg published a report that said the FBI was investigating a potential Russian hack into JPMorgan's systems.
The White House and Secret Service did not respond to requests for comment from Business Insider about whether they knew if any of Obama's personal information was compromised in an attack on JPMorgan.
