Epsilon breach also affects JPMorgan Chase customers

The Epsilon hack reported earlier as affecting Kroger customers also affected JPMorgan Chase customers. From the financial firm’s web site, this press release:

JPMorgan Chase (NYSE: JPM) Chase announced today that we were informed by Epsilon, a marketing vendor we use to send e-mails, that an unauthorized person outside their company accessed files that included e-mail addresses of some Chase customers. We are advised by Epsilon that the files that were accessed did not include any customer financial information, but are actively investigating to confirm this. As always, we are advising our customers of everything we know as we know it.

Chase will never ask customers for personal information or credentials in an email.

Information for Chase customers is available on chase.com.
