big questions about the safety of personal accounts and national security. abc's chief justice correspondent pierre thomas is tracking it from washington. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, george. today one of the nation's biggest banks has been hacked and this morning the fbi and the secret service are investigating. law enforcement sources tell abc news federal agents are investigating a potential major breach of j.p. morgan chase's computers and those of at least one other major financial institution. investigators are trying to determine whether sensitive customer account information is among what was compromised. company and government officials declined to offer specifics but last night the fbi released a statement saying it and the secret service were working to determine the scope of recently reported cyberattacks against several financial institutions. one official told abc news that when a bank the size of j.p. morgan chase is targeted, it's not just considered a financial crime but also potentially a national security matter. investigators will look to see whether organized crime rings were involved and whether the attack originated in russia. so far the bank is not seeing any unusual fraud activity but i'm sure customers want to know exactly what was hacked. >> no question about that.
7:03 am
okay, pierre, thanks very much. now to monster storms on both coasts causing massive waves and dangerous rip currents. ginger fracing ajinginger track. busy weekend for you, ginger. >> yeah, this only happens about once per decade for a lot of these folks in southern california, that's why you got the people watching and look at this video. what happens when you're watching. and it crashes right over the edge. yes, some of the waves reportedly up to 20 feet high, of course, surfers taking advantage but lifeguards having to pull several people out of the water and now we're looking for that storm that has been causing -- you can see that surfer just clicking off the top there. watch this. that storm that has been calling all of the large swells, marie, now a tropical storm. it is still weakening but as we get closer to land we still have a high surf advisory for some waves reaching 10 to still 15 feet so the threat not over. on the east coast you know we've been talking about this and already have seen two deaths due to rip currents.
7:04 am
even though you want to enjoy the holiday weekend early here's the timing for you. as that storm pulls away we will see some rough surf. dangerous rip currents improving today in the southeast and here in the northeast, new england, waves as big as ten feet. >> okay, thanks, ginger. the latest on the american journalist held hostage by isis militants. the mother of steven sotloff recording an emotional plea appealing to the leader asking him in the name of islam to release her son. abc's brian ross is tracking this story. he joins us now. good morning, brian. >> reporter: good morning, and this morning steve sotloff's mother awaits word on whether her emotional plea to save her son's life had any impact at all on his captors. >> i am shirley sotloff. my son, steven, is in your hands. >> reporter: the mother's last-ditch plea came eight days after isis publicly threatened to kill her 31-year-old journalist son if the usair
7:05 am
strikes continued, as they have. >> steven has no control over the actions of the u.s. government. he's an innocent journalist. ♪ >> reporter: shirley sotloff directed her plea personally to >> reporter: shirley sotloff directed her plea personally to the isis leader, abu bakr al baghdadi, a brutal meglmania who claims he is the caliph of the muslim world. >> i've always learned you, the caliph, can grant am mess city. i ask you to please release my child. >> reporter: but isis is a group that has shown no mercy as it has conducted its ruthless holy war across syria and iraq. thousands of innocent civilians have already been executed as the group has demonstrated the thirst for blood. >> this is not the kind of terrorist group that's going to say, we can be magnanimous here and give this one up because a mother has asked for it. >> reporter: as the isis group continues to grow military officials tell abc news it has demonstrated a sophisticated and well thought-out plan for establishing its own islamic caliphate state across syria and iraq. now they're using drones to
7:06 am
gather overhead intelligence on targets and have captured a wide range of advanced military equipment and munitions, much of it left behind by the u.s. officials say isis is now much more than the ragtag terror group it was just a few years ago. and this morning u.s. officials tell abc news they are working to confirm new reports out of syria that yet another american has been killed fighting for isis, george. >> we know that so many westerners and americans have gone over there to fight and the concern not only will they fight there but try to bring an attack back home. >> what they call the clean skin, be able to get in this country with their documents. 100 americans thought to have signed up to fight for this group. >> isis also holding two other americans, these are humanitarian aid workers. >> that's right, one man, one woman in addition to steve sotloff. >> and their families don't want their names published. thanks very much. we move now to amy for the other top stories of the day? good morning, everyone. we begin with some breaking news.
7:07 am
what is being called a full-scale invasion, reports this morning that russia is sending more troops across the border of ukraine in two locations just hours after the obama administration voiced concern about moscow's unwillingness to tell the truth about its intentions. abc's lama hasan is following it, good morning, lama. >> reporter: good morning to you, amy. this morning ukraine is admitting its troops are retreating and russian forces are now in control of southeast ukraine. as you can see in this new video coming in, the explosion of violence on the streets. the ukrainian president is canceling a trip to turkey because of what he describes a russian invasion, ukraine accusing russia of opening a new front in the conflict. abc news has spoken with a ukrainian defense ministry spokesman who confirmed to us at least 5,000 russian forces are now fighting and supporting the rebels, convoys of hundreds of
7:08 am
vehicles and armored personnel carriers have been rolling into ukraine over the last few days. now, ukraine's president has just called an urgent meeting of his security council to decide how to respond. amy. >> all right, lama, thank you very much. we'll follow this situation all morning long. in the meantime, new details in the search for malaysia airlines flight 370 missing for nearly six months. authorities are refining that search area in the indian ocean after analyzing an attempted satellite phone call from the plane. today leaders agreed to a year-long search. meanwhile, after the recent disasters many malaysia airline flights have been virtually empty. the company is set to announce major job cuts. a big explosion at this bp oil refinery near chicago shaking homes for miles. you can see the flames pouring from the facility. the blast has been traced back to a compressor, thankfully no one was injured. and the sister of the boston marathon bombing suspects is in trouble with the law accused of making a bomb threat.
7:09 am
police in new york say ailina tsarnaev called the mother of her boyfriend's children this week saying "i have people that can put a bomb on you." she is charged with aggravated harassment. a seattle man caught on camera stealing this suv with a baby girl inside. the father had left the engine running while he stopped at the store. he saw what was happening, ran outside and tried to disable the suv with his remote key even trying a foot chase but the thief got away. it took about an hour but police finally caught the suspect and that little girl is okay. thankfully. well, a new lawsuit is aimed at protecting youth and pro soccer players from head injuries. a group of parents and players filing suit against organizations that oversee the sport. they're demanding rules be changed to limit head butting and require more medical testing. finally, think you're having a bad hair day. take a look at what happened to tennis star caroline wozniacki at the u.s. open. she tries to return a shot and
7:10 am
her hair actually gets caught in the racket. >> oh, no. she didn't give up on the play, though. she still tried to hit the ball. she said if felt like her head was about to come off. i can see why. she went on to win in straight sets and later she said, it was just one of those things, we women, we keep it interesting. it's one way to look at it. i love she still tried to hit it. forget about the braid. >> they swing so fast. >> everything is so much harder for you guys. >> isn't it, though? >> thank you, george. >> thank you, george. >> and thank you, amy. we do want to turn to the latest on usc football star josh shaw. earlier he claimed he sprained his ankles trying to save his nephew from drowning. now he admits he made that story up. abc's linsey davis is here with the latest on it, good morning, linsey. >> reporter: good morning, lara. earlier this week, he was hailed a hero.
7:11 am
this morning he is being called a liar and says the elaborate and daring rescue of his nephew was a complete fabrication. >> and josh shaw. >> reporter: this morning usc cornerback and team captain josh shaw is suspended indefinitely from the team after admitting he lied about how he ended up with two sprained ankles over the weekend. >> it was so out of character for him. he was the kid who always did everything right. >> reporter: on monday, the 22-year-old football player was praised as a hero after telling the school he jumped from a second story apartment saturday to rescue his 7-year-old nephew from drowning. but the very next day, speculation he lied. >> we've gotten a few phone calls contradicting what josh said occurred saturday night so we're going to continue to vet it. >> reporter: but when shaw's sister spoke to us she jumped to his defense saying she wasn't there at the time but believes shaw did rescue her son. >> my child is safe and it's because of josh. >> reporter: by late wednesday shaw came clean in a statement released by his attorney. i injured myself in a fall. i made up a story about this
7:12 am
fall that was untrue. i was wrong to not tell the truth. i apologize to usc. >> he shouldn't have lied about it but he's a captain here. we should stand by him as a school. >> reporter: now another twist, the lapd releasing a statement saying shaw was mentioned but not named a suspect in a break-in at an apartment building the same night he claimed to be rescuing his nephew. witnesses described a black male with dreadlocks leaving the apartment balcony. the report says. mr. shaw is listed as the victim's boyfriend who happened to have a similar description of the suspect leaving the apartment. no suspects have been arrested. the investigation is still ongoing. his attorney says nothing was criminal. the biggest question that looms out there is why did he make up such an intricate lie? >> so the trojans will start their season this weekend without one of their starters. the coach did say he hopes josh will not be defined by this incident and that the trojan family will accept his apology and support him.
7:13 am
george? >> thanks. abc's chief legal affairs anchor dan abrams is here, you said yesterday it was a strange story. >> and now we're being able to piece together a little better what actually happened. we know he lied. put aside the whole story about the 7-year-old nephew for a moment. here's what we know. the authorities get a report in downtown los angeles of a woman screaming, possible burglary. they show up. they're directed to an apartment complex. they go to an apartment complex. they end up interviewing a woman who seems to have been shaw's girlfriend. shaw's girlfriend identifies a person out on a balcony near where a window had been pried open as matching a description of someone who matches shaw. shaw's own lawyer puts him there at that apartment complex saying that is where he fell from a balcony so now we know forget all the business about his nephew and a swimming pool, et cetera. even his own lawyer is now admitting that the fall occurred at an apartment complex where there had been some sort of incident that night.
7:14 am
>> so what kind of legal exposure does he have now, breaking and entering. >> we have to be careful. we don't know he was involved in that. you can lie about the police, but you get in trouble if you lie to the police. right? big difference there. so if he just lied about what happened and, you know, he was declared a hero by usc and by the media, that's just incredibly embarrassing and an issue that comes up with usc. he's being suspended from the team, et cetera. the problem for him would occur if he was questioned by the police. >> well, so that's the question. if he went out and told the story it's not a legal matter but if the police came and questioned him -- >> that's the fundamental line as to where he could get in real trouble versus just, you know, a little bit of trouble. in the meantime, he's suspended from the team. >> that's right, indefinitely. >> dan abrams, thanks very much. all right. we want to move now to a health alert about dangerous water in one louisiana community. a potentially deadly amoeba has been found in the water supply for thousands of people and abc's steve osunsami has the story.
7:15 am
>> reporter: this morning, a deadly brain-eating amoeba often found in warm ponds and lakes is now tainting the drinking water of nearly 13,000 people in st. john the baptist parish, louisiana. >> the problem is making sure you keep precautions to keep it from going up your nose. >> reporter: health officials are warning residents to keep water from getting into their noses while swimming or bathing and telling parents to keep a close eye on children playing with hoses or sprinklers. >> it finds itself way back in our noses and then can work its way into our central nervous system around our brains and once it's there it just causes destruction. >> reporter: the amoeba breeds in warm standing bodies of water, even a pool that's poorly chlorinated. infections are rare but almost always fatal. today officials will begin a chlorine burn to clear the water but that will take them 60 days. >> we're taking every step necessary to relieve that threat. >> reporter: last month haley
7:16 am
yust died from a brain-eating amoeba. she was a waterskier. over the years, 130 reported cases and only 3 people sur vied. kali hardig was one of them hospitalized for nine weeks after contracting the disease in an arkansas water park. >> i was real sick. i was scared, believe me. >> reporter: for "good morning america," steve osunsami, abc news, atlanta. >> thanks to steve for that. these amoeba are so dangerous. we'll switch gears and a new chapter for diane sawyer. after five years of leading abc's evening newscast to new heights she signed off as "world news" anchor for the last time. >> there's been so much to celebrate here, as well, connections, community, america and the generosity of our neighbors next door. i want you to know none of that will change. "world news" is dedicated to what informs you and we always hope helps make your life better. and on a personal note as i said i'm not going far. down the hall up the stairs and
7:17 am
i am not slowing down but gearing up in a new way, already at work on some of the stories that take you into the real lives around us, the ones we rarely get to see. >> you know that work has already begun. we'll see and hear much more from diane in new and different ways with original reporting specials, big interviews across all the programs and platforms of abc news. she's already done all there is to do at abc. had so much impact. it's going to be exciting to see what she'll come up with next and i know diane is excited about it too. we're so excited for her. >> absolutely. >> simply the best. >> last night when she had the moment she gave a tribute to her staff which i thought was such a great moment. we got to meet all the people behind the scenes. >> everybody behind the scenes. >> that was such a special moment as she signed off. >> exactly who she is. i was there too and gio was and she said her staff is everything the people and viewers, people mean so much to her. tv's transparent like an
7:18 am
x-ray, and we love seeing it. >> more to come. >> also more to come for her husband mike. she's going to have dinner with him more often. >> fantastic. okay. now we got to switch to ginger and get the storm damage in missouri. >> yeah, so start in st. louis area. the video from there, there were very few storm damage reports but many came from populated areas. the tree into the truck there and that was the case and today the storms will ride along that same warm front, the low coming up in the next three days will drop some pretty heavy rains for parts of the great lakes and the plains. look from des moines-ish to marquette, michigan and some of the target areas. there is another tropical low, not going to become much of anything but a rainmaker from houston to baton rouge and new orleans all included in that 2 to 3-inch range.

7:37 am
relatively easy call. three hours of deliberation. >> yeah. just three mohours. >> the prosecution was calling it vigilante justice. what was their strongest evidence to that point? >> the strongest evidence, he was seen leaving -- his home was a hundred yards away. he's seen leaving the scene and then coming back. he said he didn't own a gun and yet they found a holster and ammunition at his home that was potentially consistent with the weapon that was used here. that was the most important piece of evidence in this case. but without more and the sympathy for the defendant, this was a really hard -- this is one of these cases where that beyond a reasonable doubt standard really means a lot because i bet you if you asked all these jurors do you think he did it, probably all of them would say probably but that's not enough to convict him. but that's not enough to convict him. >> sad all around. >> horrible, horrible. >> dan abrams, thank you so much. we want to turn now to ginger with the latest on the weather.
