Re: So what?

"... Some of these attacks are exaggerated by news channels and social media."

 

@Dr, T     I agree.  A lot of these attacks are misunderstood banter on the Net.   But what really annoys me is that Chase apparently sat on this information for a long time.   Considering they should have released this news as soon as they were aware.   Enough with how the public is going to perceive you.  

I for one already know Chase is using "smoke and mirrors" when it comes to security.   They are doing no more than is required by law, and that apparently isn't enough.

So why did it take them so long to release this information ?   Only the nieve amongst us really believes Chase or any Net facing business is ever safe from a breech.

If Chase thinks we the public would think less of them because of this, well it has long since been too late for that.

Re: The Real Issue of Data Breech and J.P. Morgan
I agree. This is the main problem. Attacks keep happening, we keep reporting but nothing happens to attackers and the ones who are responsible for allowing that. That is the biggest and most important loophole in security.

Re: J.P Morgan: Because We Said So.........
It may simply mean sensitive information such as account number, SSN and balance are kept in the rest of the severs but it is hard to believe those 90 servers do not have PII.

Re: J.P. Morgan and The Big Hole
I agree. You can actually put two-factor on servers to decrease risk of exploits, but that being the solution for their hack is that realistic.

So what?
80 million businesses email and address and phones are stolen? They did not have to steal that, we could have given them this induration. Some of these attacks are exaggerated by news channels and social media. Two factor authentication is not a solution for security problems, especially for JPMorgan.

The Real Issue of Data Breech and J.P. Morgan

Just what is Chase doing for those millions of customers whose data was compromised ?  (and an uncomfortable silence ensues).

 

I think I will just keep asking until I get an answer.

J.P Morgan: Because We Said So.........

"...The JPMorgan hackers were able to access more than 90 of the bank's servers, but were detected before they got to sensitive customer financial information."

 

Chase really expects the public to believe this ?    Of course they do - they are Chase after all.   This is literally amazing, I believe the word is ludicrous.

J.P. Morgan and The Big Hole

"....the big hole that led attackers to the data was the lack of two-factor authentication of one of the bank's network servers."

 

What can you say about this ?   Seriously two-factor authentication ?!    This is simply blantant carelessness by admins and the Bank itself.  I am not about to let Chase off the hook for this in it's entirety, but looking at it from a micro-level it is clear ( to me at least) that someone was asleep at the wheel.  Taking their job for granted maybe ?  

Whatever the case, it does not speak well of Chase ( I am not sure anything could actually) nor does it speak well of their IT department.

I wonder if this is the same (IT) group that handles high frequency trading and the rest ?   If not get them on this issue - they have a proven track record of success.
