  • JPMorgan Says Data Breach Affected 76 Million Households (Alex Veiga, Associated Press, abc News) JPMorgan Chase & Co. has reported a huge cyber attack this summer which compromised customer information for about 76 million households and 7 million small businesses, the bank said Thursday. Names, addresses, phone numbers and email addresses were stolen from the company's servers but the data did not include account numbers, passwords, Social Security numbers or dates of birth. Only customers who use the websites Chase.com and JPMorganOnline and the apps ChaseMobile and JPMorgan Mobile were affected.

  • Conservatives set to defy Europe on human rights (George Parker and Helen Warrell, Financial Times) The UK wants the European Court of Human Rights to allow that country to regard the court's rulings as "advisory" and retaining human rights law sovereignty with the British government.

UK Justice Secretary Chris Gatling said that if other countries disagreed with the British request then the UK would "simply walk away".
