The unrest in Ukraine has made the U.S. banking system a target for hackers, according to Bloomberg News, which is reporting today that Russian hackers stole troves of personal data from JP Morgan Chase and at least four other banks.

The hackers reportedly stole valuable account information and took sensitive information from employee computers.

Now the FBI is investigating whether the attacks are retaliation against the U.S. for economic sanctions it slapped on Russia during the ongoing Ukrainian conflict.

Bloomberg's Michael Regan joins Here & Now's Sacha Pfeiffer to explain what this means for Americans.
