Consumers suffering data-breach fatigue have yet another reason to be vigilant—but now, it's not just your bank statements you'll need to scrutinize.
JP Morgan Chase said Thursday that a computer hack this summer compromised contact information for 76 million households and 7 million small businesses that had used the bank's online and mobile sites. Hackers captured names, email addresses, phone numbers and mailing addresses, the company wrote in a note to customers on Chase.com.
"There is no evidence that your account numbers, passwords, user IDs, date of birth or Social Security number were compromised during this attack," according to the note. The bank also said it has seen no fraudulent activity related to the breach.
In one sense, that's a relief for customers. "From what it looks like right now, nothing was taken that should have consumers concerned about [whether] someone has access to their bank account," said Geoff Webb, senior director of solution strategy for security management firm NetIQ.
But compromised contact information can still pose a danger to your finances. Hackers know where those affected consumers bank, and how to reach them. "People need to be much more wary of phishing attacks in particular," said Jason Malo, a research director with CEB TowerGroup.

Chase's announcement comes on the heels of a string of data breaches, including last month's Home Depot breach that affected some 56 million credit card numbers and the revelation in August that a Russian crime ring stole an estimated 1.2 billion username and password combos.
