NEW YORK (Reuters) - Bank of America Corp still doesn't know exactly what damaging documents Wikileaks could have about it, the largest U.S. bank's chief information officer said on Thursday.

"We don't know what it is," Bank of America's Marc Gordon said during a panel discussion about cyberterrorism moderated by Reuters Editor-in-Chief Stephen Adler on Thursday evening.

Gordon added that the bank has "done the diligence we think we need to do" to protect itself.

Wikileaks founder Julian Assange has hinted that his website has information that will hurt the reputation of Bank of America. Last year, he said it would be released early in 2011, but the site has yet to publish such data.
