Four Indicted in Massive JP Morgan Chase Hack

FEDERAL AUTHORITIES HAVE indicted four men on charges that they hacked into multiple financial institutions and operated a stock-pumping scheme and online gambling operations that netted them more than 100 million dollars.

The Feds say the defendants are responsible for hacking into JP Morgan Chase last year and obtaining access to more than 80 million customer accounts.

Authorities have charged Gery Shalon, Joshua Samuel Aaron, and Zic Orenstein on 23 counts, including unauthorized access of computers, identity theft, securities and wire fraud and money laundering. The fourth hacker who helped them breach the networks has not been identified.
