And thus it becomes a one-day wonder at the bottom of page C3 in my printed Globe:
"Four arrests said to be tied to JPMorgan hacking; Suspects in Fla., Israel accused of investment scam" by Matthew Goldstein New York Times July 21, 2015
NEW YORK — Authorities have arrested four men in Florida and Israel in connection with a series of investment schemes related to last summer’s cyberattack against JPMorgan Chase, according to court filings and people briefed on the matter.
The breach compromised contact information for tens of millions of bank customers.
Court filings unsealed on Tuesday did not mention the attack on JPMorgan’s network. Instead, they detailed charges involving a bitcoin operation and a pump-and-dump stock scheme, a plan involving ransomware on computers and a small New Jersey credit union.
That nest of roaches where the propaganda pre$$ light doesn't shine.
But the people briefed on the matter said that the four men arrested and another who remains at large in Israel had some involvement in the security breach at JPMorgan Chase, one of the largest ever to hit a major US bank.
The three men charged in the stock scheme are Gery Shalon and Ziv Orenstein, both of Israel, and Joshua Samuel Aaron, a US citizen who lived in Israel and the United States.
Shalon and Orenstein were arrested in Israel, while Aaron remains at large.
Two other men, Anthony Murgio and Yuri Lebedev, were arrested in Florida and charged in two separate complaints with unlicensed money transmitting.
The attack on JPMorgan was initially believed to have been tied to Russian gangs, with possible ties to the Russian government.
Federal authorities quickly ruled out the Russian government as a suspect, as well as the possibility of direct ties to Russian gangs. The court filings on Tuesday, however, suggest some loose connection.
Of course, the impression that it was the Russian government was left out there an entire year.
A JPMorgan spokeswoman declined to comment on the arrests. The breach did not compromise customer financial information or sensitive personal financial information.
Of course not. Just good Jewish boys fooling around.
Federal authorities in New York had made the JPMorgan attack a priority investigation, and in the spring, some investigators were privately expressing confidence that they would announce some arrests by the summer, if not earlier.
Next thing you know they will be blaming ISIS.
Sorry for being so sour about the coverage.

No surprise if the hackers are from Silicon Valley, is it?
