JPMorgan Chase & Co. bank, along with its brokerages and a major business news publication, were targets of hackers who pulled off the largest theft of customer data from a U.S. financial institution in history, the U.S. said Tuesday in announcing charges against four men, reports Bloomberg.
The scheme ran from 2012 to mid-2015. In addition to the hacks on the U.S. financial sector, the defendants targeted other companies and laundered their “vast criminal proceeds” through at least 75 shell companies, according to the indictment.
The four men charged are Anthony Murgio, Gery Shalon, Joshua Aaron and Ziv Orenstein.
Shalon and Orenstein are Israeli nationals who were arrested in July. Aaron is a U.S. citizen who has lived in Moscow and Tel Aviv, authorities have said, according to Reuters.
