Hacker Group, Anonymous, Hits Federal Reserve

U.S. Banks May Have Been Hacked By Russia

FBI Examining Whether Russia Is Tied to JPMorgan Hacking

The FBI is investigating a wave of coordinated cyberattacks that have hit JPMorgan Chase and other U.S. firms in the past month.

Computer hackers have targeted JPMorgan Chase & Co. and at least four other banks in a coordinated attack on U.S. financial institutions in the past month, Bloomberg is reporting.

Two unidentified sources — one a U.S. official and another a person briefed by U.S. law enforcement — discussed the incident with Bloomberg, with one saying that the theft of customer data could be used to drain accounts.
A third person said that employee data had been breached, and that the scale of the theft — which involved many gigabytes of data — meant there was potential for serious fraud.

Bloomberg’s report says the FBI is in the process of investigating whether Russian hackers were involved in attacks on JPMorgan and at least one other bank.

The attack may have been in retaliation for sanctions placed on the country for its involvement in the ongoing conflict in eastern Ukraine.
In a statement, JPMorgan spokesperson Trish Wexler said: “Banks of our size unfortunately experience cyberattacks nearly every day. We have multiple layers of defense to counteract any threats and constantly monitor fraud levels.”
According to the Guardian, Wexler did not confirm the reports.
“We are working with the United States Secret Service to determine the scope of recently reported cyber attacks against several American financial institutions,” FBI spokesman Joshua Campbell said in a statement.

JPMorgan is America’s largest bank in terms of assets.

The Wall Street Journal said the hacking incidents marked a “significant breach of corporate computer security.”

Here's The Driverless Car Video Google Doesn't Want You To See

We caught this over at IEEE Spectrum — here's a video of a couple of rascals horsing around in their Infiniti Q50. What begins as an autonomous but innocuous joyride turns into a nonsensical, dangerous stunt around the 1:28 mark.
Watch above as the blurred-out would-be stuntman leaves the driver's seat to sit in the back. The driver's seat is completely unoccupied as the thousand-pound vehicle hurtles down the freeway.
No, this isn't a Google self-driving car. But as Google aims to be synonymous with self-driving car technology, we can't imagine they'd appreciate getting the idea into people's heads that a driver could catch a nap in the backseat while a car's in motion.
It also bears mentioning that the Q50 isn't an all-in-one driverless solution. It merely has a highway autopilot-type function designed for keeping the car in its lane, and nothing more.
