Softpedia – (New Hampshire; International) JPMorgan Chase Bank servers hacked, Tiffany employee details exposed. Computer servers owned by JPMorgan Chase Bank were breached, and the financial institution alerted high-end jewelry company Tiffany & Co because the affected machines contained the personal details of some employees, Softpedia reported September 25. ―Chase told us that the affected servers, which contained certain information provided in connection with a Tiffany employee travel expense reimbursement system, contained information such as names, addresses, Social Security numbers and banking information, Tiffany’s chief privacy officer wrote in a letter September 5 to the New Hampshire attorney general. The bank told the company it had no reason to believe that the sensitive data has been copied or misused by the attackers. The financial institution also shut down the affected servers and upgraded its security systems to prevent such incidents from occurring in the future. Tiffany also sent out letters to the impacted individuals – there are ― approximately three employees from New Hampshire – advising them to be on the lookout for any suspicious transactions.
