Chase cyberattack

There have been a string of hacking problems lately including the recent iCloud breach to the security vulnerability behind the Heartbleed bug. Google and Yahoo were also targets earlier this year. Even gaming companies aren't safe from hackers.

JPMorgan Chase & Co. or more colloquially known as Chase, says that a cyberattack that occurred earlier this summer made away with information from about 76 million households and 7 million small businesses.

Details have emerged stating that names, addresses, phone numbers and email addresses were all stolen in the attack.

However Chase says there has been no evidence that account numbers, passwords, user IDs, dates of birth or Social Security numbers were compromised.

Chase CEO Jamie Dimon says the bank hasn't detected "any unusual customer fraud" but the attack is still being investigated.
