  • The Attack

  • The former CEO Travis Kalanick was informed of this attack 1 month after it happened but it was not publicly announced, as it was covered up by Chief Security Officer Joe Sullivan and his subordinates, leading Uber to fire them both.
  • Amazon
  • The Uber company supposedly paid its hackers a $100,000 payment to delete the data and not publicize it to the media or regulators. 
  • The hack include names, email addresses, and phone numbers of over 50 million Uber riders worldwide, while more than 7 million Uber drivers had similar data released on top of driver's license numbers for around 600,000 US drivers.
  • Driver's License Number
  • The nature of the hack is relatively straightforward, as hackers with access to a public GitHub code repository used by Uber engineers, were able to collect private login history to an Amazon cloud computer service; to which the hackers stole a list of rider and driver data. They then forced Uber for the $100,000 fee.
  • After the incident Uber will learn form there mistakes and they have brought on a former lawyer for the National Security Agency, who has served as a director for the National Counterterrorism Centre to help improve the security. The company has also retained security from Mandiant to further investigate the hack .
