Massive data breach hits US banks and retailers

Epsilon, which manages email communications for TiVo, JP Morgan Chase, Capital One Financial, US Bank, the Kroger grocery chain, and other clients said it suffered a security breach that revealed data on some of its clients' customers.

Epsilon, which says it sends 40 billion emails annually, released a statement on Friday saying that on 30 March it detected an "unauthorised entry" into its system that exposed customer names and email addresses. The company said "no other personal identifiable information associated with those names was at risk".

Bloomberg reported that an Epsilon representative would not say how many other clients might be affected, citing an ongoing investigation.
