Uber Admits 2.7m UK Users Had Data Stolen In Hack

Uber lame sign

Uber has revealed that 2.7m riders and drivers have been affected by the massive hack which hit 57m worldwide.

Separately, prosecutors in the U.S. have heard that Uber may have hired ex-CIA intelligence operatives to conduct surveillance on its rivals.

The breach was a further setback to the Silicon Valley company after London's transport regulator stripped it of its operating licence in September, citing Uber's approach to reporting serious criminal offences and background checks on drivers.

The company made the admission to the information Commissioner's Office (ICO) which is investigating the incident, which affected 58 million users and drivers and was kept secret until last week.

He is the one that you want to say "you know what, I just need someone to finish this off". These team comes from hell, they play 46 games to come out of the Championship.

CRAPSICAB COMPANY Uber has admitted that as many as 2.7 million United Kingdom customers and drivers were affected by the 2016 mega-hack on the company. "There is no excuse for keeping this information from consumers".

Under Washington law, the breach of names, phone numbers and addresses does not require notification, Ferguson said, but the driver's license numbers do. If UK citizens were affected then we should have been notified so that we could assess and verify the impact on people whose data was exposed. Violations carry fines of up to US$2,000, and Ferguson said each day Uber failed to notify each customer constitutes a violation.

Ferguson's lawsuit is the first from a state, although attorneys general in New York, Missouri, Massachusetts, Connecticut and IL have begun investigations, and the city of Chicago and Cook County have filed a lawsuit.

"The government takes both the protection of personal data and the right to privacy extremely seriously". Almost 11,000 drivers in the state were affected.

A joint lawsuit was filed on behalf of IL and the city of Chicago on Monday, seeking to hold the ride sharing company accountable for a 2016 breach that exposed the data of 57 million customers and drivers worldwide.

The lawsuit seeks civil penalties in the millions of dollars.

Uber spokeswoman Molly Spaeth responded in a statement, according to The Chicago Tribune, noting that the ride sharing company was "committed to changing the way we do business, putting integrity at the core of every decision we make, and working hard to regain the trust of consumers".
