(WASHINGTON) — The FBI is investigating a cyberattack earlier this month against JPMorgan Chase that may have been carried out by Russian hackers.
It is not clear whether customer data was compromised by the attack. The FBI released a statement on Wednesday saying that they were working with the U.S. Secret Service to determine the scope of the breach, noting that it may also have impacted other financial institutions.
JPMorgan Chase spokeswoman Trish Wexler told ABC News that “companies of our size unfortunately experience cyberattacks nearly every day.” JPMorgan, she said, has “multiple layers of defense to counteract any threats and constantly monitor fraud levels.”
