Two soundbites from CEO Jamie Dimon at today's shareholders meeting
The Justice Department has begun looking into JPMorgan Chase's $2 billion-and-counting loss from a hedge account, The Wall Street Journal reports. It cites "a person familiar with the matter" as its source.
The Journal adds that "the probe is at an early stage and it isn't clear what possible legal violation federal investigators may be focusing on."
The White House and FBI have confirmed al-Qaida attempted to target a plane bound for the United States. All indications are the plan was conceived by al-Qaida's arm in Yemen. But officials say the plot was foiled before it was any threat to the public.
For years, the U.S. Department of Justice has known that flawed forensic work by FBI experts may have led to the convictions of innocent people, but prosecutors rarely told defendants or their attorneys, according to an investigative report in The Washington Post.
State officials in Utah now say a computer breach 10 days ago is far worse than they originally thought. Hackers made off with 280,000 Social Security numbers and "approximately 500,000 other victims had less-sensitive information stolen," according to the Utah Department of Health (UDOH).
Officials originally said that about 25,000 state Medicaid records were accessed on March 30 when unidentified hackers believed to be from Eastern Europe exploited a configuration error for a new state computer server. The error left the server without security protection.
