In October 2016 the taxi company,Uber was victim of a cyber attack the attack resulted in 57 million customers and drivers having their confidential data exposed
The hack included names, email addresses, and phone numbers of more than 50 million Uber riders worldwide, while more than 7 million Uber drivers had similar data exposed on top of driver’s license numbers for around 600,000 US drivers
Hacking 100% complete
OH COME ON! $£*&!
The company allegedly paid its hackers a $100,000 ransom to delete the data and not publicize the breach to media or regulators
Among Uber’s faults include not only failing to disclose the hack, but in covering it up as well. Former CEO Travis Kalanick was informed of the attack just one month after it transpired, but it was not publicly announced and in fact was concealed by Chief Security Officer Joe Sullivan and his subordinates, the report says, leading Uber to fire the executive and one of his lieutenants.
