Four men reportedly arrested in connection to JPMorgan Chase hack
According to The New York Times and Bloomberg News, four men in Florida and Israel have been arrested in connection to the 2014 hack against JPMorgan Chase, which resulted in gigabytes of bank data being exfiltrated. The news outlets, citing anonymous sources, did not fully explain how all the suspects were connected.
The United States Attorney in Manhattan announced that the two Florida men were arrested Tuesday and were formally charged with operating an unlicensed Bitcoin exchange, coin.mx.
However, their criminal complaints make no mention of JPMorgan Chase. The two Israelis were named as Gery Shalon and Ziv Orenstein and were arrested by authorities there. A fifth man, Joshua Samuel Aaron, an American living in Israel, is reportedly still at large.
