HSBC Heist Includes Data on 130,000 Clients Worldwide, JDD Says

Le Journal du Dimanche (JDD) reports that the data stolen from HSBC in Geneva includes information on 130,000 clients from around the world, according to a story in Bloomberg News that cites the paper and a French prosecutor, Eric de Montgolfier.

A former employee at the Swiss bank leaked the information to de Montgolfier, who is probing possible money laundering, the newspaper reported, without identifying the worker. The Finance Ministry in Paris also received some of the data that was stolen and is using it to investigate the 3,000 or so French taxpayers on the list, JDD said.
