JP Morgan Chase, one of America’s largest banks, announced that more than 80 million accounts were hacked in August. At issue: a computer attack that would have affected 76 million household accounts, and 7 million small business accounts during the month of August.

However, there is still no evidence that account numbers, user IDs, passwords or social security numbers have been compromised, the bank explains on a specially dedicated page. “We have not seen any unusual fraudulent activity linked to this incident,” the bank also adds.

However, it specifies its customers that their “contact details – name, address, telephone number and your e-mail address – have been compromised”. Other companies have also recently experienced customer data breaches. These include the Target distribution chain, or Domino’s Pizza.
