Massive Uber data breach includes 57M customers, drivers
Posted on Wednesday November 22, 2017

Uber paid the hackers $100K to keep the theft quiet for a year, according to reports

The popular ride-sharing service Uber acknowledged Tuesday that personal information about 57 million customers and drivers was stolen in a data breach in 2016 and reports say the company tried to cover-up the hack by paying a $100,000 ransom.

Two people outside the company accessed the names, email addresses and mobile phone numbers of about 57 million customers, newly hired Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi wrote on the company website.

Khosrowshahi emphasized that there's no indication that the hackers accessed trip location history, credit card numbers, bank account information, Social Security numbers or dates of birth.

In addition, the data thieves collected the names and driver's license numbers of about 600,000 drivers.

Uber said it's notifying drivers whose license information was stolen. The company will cover the cost of free credit monitoring and identity theft protection for those affected.

Though the data stored on a third-party cloud service was accessed in October 2016, Khosrowshahi said she only recently learned of it. 

The New York Times, citing sources, reported Uber prevented the disclosure of the data breach for a year by paying a $100,000 ransom to the hackers.

Joe Sullivan, the security officer who arranged the payment to the hackers was fired earlier this year, according to NYTimes.com.  Former chief executive Travis Kalanick remains on the company's board.

Uber also experienced a date breach in 2014, when hackers stole information on about 50,000 drivers.
