Inc.® (NASDAQ: JKHY), a leading provider of technology solutions and
payment processing services primarily for the financial services

Upon notification by the third-party provider, Geezeo immediately
began investigating. In reviewing the information from the third-party

similar information that would permit access to a consumer's financial
account was accessed.

Geezeo has contacted all financial institutions that were affected.
Proper remediation steps have been taken to contain the incident and
to secure the company's systems to help ensure that future incidents
of this nature cannot occur. The appropriate regulatory bodies and
federal law enforcement have been notified.

Charlie Wright, Chief Risk Officer of Jack Henry & Associates, said,
"Safeguarding our clients' information is essential to our mission.
Although the incident occurred prior to our acquisition of Geezeo, I
am grateful it has been contained. We appreciate the understandable
worry the incident has caused for the small number of financial
institutions that were affected."
