Topic: Russian hackers attacked JPMorgan: reports

Hackers believed to be from Russia broke into the computer systems of JPMorgan Chase and a second US bank earlier this month, sparking a federal investigation, US media reported Wednesday. Bloomberg said two people familiar with the probe confirmed that the Federal Bureau of Investigation was examining the case to see if it is retaliation for US sanctions against Moscow over its support of Ukraine's secessionist rebels. Bloomberg and The Wall Street Journal, which also reported the hacking case but without naming Russians as behind it, said it was not clear what damage the hackers caused or what data they may have stolen. Bloomberg said the hackers showed a high level of skill to get through layers of security in the bank's systems, "a feat several security experts said appeared far beyond the capability of ordinary criminal hackers."
