Two charged in cyberfraud against JPMorgan and others, plead not guilty

By Brendan Pierson NEW YORK (Reuters) – Two Israeli citizens pleaded not guilty on Thursday to orchestrating a massive computer hacking and fraud scheme that included an attack against JPMorgan Chase & Co and generated hundreds of millions of dollars of illegal profit. Gery Shalon, 32, and Ziv Orenstein, 41, entered their pleas in Manhattan federal court before U.S. Magistrate Judge Nathaniel Fox. Shalon, Orenstein and a third defendant, Joshua Samuel Aaron, all from Israel, were charged in November in a 23-count indictment with alleged crimes targeting 12 companies, including nine financial services companies and media outlets such as The Wall Street Journal.
