JPMorgan Chase & Co. declined to say whether or not President Barack Obama’s personal data was compromised in a massive security breach made public Thursday.

Obama reportedly held one of the bank’s credit cards as late as July.

Nevertheless, company spokesman Darin Oduyoye told Business Insider the company was “not commenting” on the matter.

As Business Insider noted, a White House pool report from July said Obama used his “JPMorgan card” to make a purchase at a barbecue restaurant in Texas.

The New York-based bank said Thursday that customer information including names, addresses, phone numbers and email addresses were stolen in the cyberattack.

However, JPMorgan says there’s no evidence that the data breach included customers’ account numbers, passwords, Social Security numbers or dates of birth.

JPMorgan Chase, the nation’s biggest bank by assets, has been working with law enforcement officials to investigate the cyberattack.
