JPMorgan Chase ‘glitch’ gave some customers access to others’ bank accounts, confidential data

A number of JPMorgan Chase customers’ accounts were exposed after a “glitch” briefly gave some clients access to other people’s online accounts instead of their own. The issue was first reported by Fly & Dine after one of the writers’ fiancé tried logging into their online bank account but instead gained access to the account of a random other client in New Jersey.

“We could see his credit cards, his login details, his addresses, his phone numbers, and every other piece of sensitive information that’s lurking in your online bank account,” Jason Kessler wrote. The couple notified Chase of the error and were told by a customer service representative that other people have been calling in all day reporting similar issues.
