Washington state sues Uber for millions over data breach cover up
Washington Attorney General Bob Ferguson is suing Uber, after the ride-hailing company waited more than a year to reveal that it had been hacked, resulting in the breach of personal data for customers and drivers. The organisation has already parted company with its chief security officer, Joe Sullivan, over the 13-month cover-up.
"We have seen no evidence of fraud or misuse tied to the incident".
In a statement released on Tuesday, the firm said that hackers made off with names, email addresses, and phone numbers of those affected in October 2016, adding that location history, credit card numbers and dates of birth were not obtained in the massive data breach.
In a statement, deputy commisioner of the ICO, James Dipple-Johnstone, said: On its own [the stolen] information is unlikely to pose a direct threat to citizens. "However, its use may make other scams, such as bogus emails or calls appear more credible".
No financial details or journey records were taken by the attackers, who were paid $100,000 to delete the files, but some personal information was stolen and there are no guarantees the data was indeed destroyed. It's believed that more than 57 million Uber users were affected globally. People should continue to be vigilant and follow the advice from the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC). "Nevertheless, the nature of the information now acknowledged to have been compromised, together with the allegation that the company concealed the breach without notifying affected drivers and consumers, and prior privacy concerns at Uber, makes this a serious incident that merits further scrutiny".
