The largest U.S. bank was hacked again, exposing the sensitive data of over 76,000,000 households and over 7 million small businesses.
The bank giant claims the only data it can confirm as breached is customer names, addresses, phone numbers, and email addresses. The hackers were also able to contain the customer category data which identifies what service the customer uses (banking, loans, etc).
The breach affects any customer who used their website (Chase.com) or mobile application. The hackers were able to access user data through a recently discovered website vulnerability.
Home Depot was recently hacked in addition to eBay and several other American vendors. Some investigators have claimed the attacks originated in Russia.
