Investigators Believe Another Firm Lost Data

Investigators believe that the hackers that broke into J.P. Morgan Chase JPM & Co. targeted at least 12 other financial-services companies, including Fidelity Investments, a person briefed on the matter said, suggesting the cyberattack spree on Wall Street was broader than previously thought.

Investigators also believe that the hackers successfully took data from at least one organization other than J.P. Morgan, the person said.

Other institutions saw traffic from Internet addresses linked to the intruders but blocked their efforts or lost no data, the person said.

Citigroup Inc., Trade Financial Corp. , HSBC Holdings PLC, Regions Financial Corp. and Automatic Data Processing Inc. saw intrusion attempts from the suspected hackers, though no data were believed to have been taken, people familiar with the matter have said.
