Four men are in custody after allegedly hacking banking giant JPMorgan Chase & Co. in the largest bank breach in history.

From 2012 to 2015, the men -- including Anthony Murgio, previously arrested for operating an illegal bitcoin exchange -- allegedly stole information from more than 100 million customers, Bloomberg reports.

"We appreciate the strong partnership with law enforcement in bringing the criminals to justice," JPMorgan said in a statement. "As we did here, we continue to cooperate with law enforcement in fighting cybercrime."

Among the victims is a major business news publication, according to an indictment released Tuesday. Patricia Wexler, spokeswoman for JPMorgan, could confirm only that JPMorgan is one of the victims.

"I can confirm officially that we’re victim number one referenced in the indictment," Wexler said. As for the news publication, "We’re all speculating and trying to guess, but I don’t have anything official," she added.

JPMorgan had initially refused to admit how many people were hacked.

U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara is planning to hold a press conference later on Tuesday.

This is a developing story. Check back for updates.
