Uber Discloses Data Breach, Kept Secret for a Year, Affecting 57 Million Accounts

Wednesday 23:45 GMT

Uber on Tuesday disclosed it was the victim of a data breach last October that affected 57 million driver and rider accounts and that it fired its chief security officer, Joe Sullivan, for keeping the breach a secret for more than a year.

After the breach, two hackers approached Uber demanding payment for the stolen data and proof of the deletion of the data. Uber did not make the breach public and instead paid the hackers $100,000 to ensure the stolen data was expunged.
