Calling Uber on a cell phone

Uber Technologies, Inc. disclosed that hackers stole the personal information of some 57 million customers and drivers from the ride-sharing company, according to a report by Bloomberg News. The news outlet also reported that, for more than a year, Uber concealed news of the data breach, which was discovered in late 2016. Bloomberg News reports that company executives originally paid the hackers $100,000 to delete the data and keep news of the data breach quiet. In its statement, Uber said that two individuals who led the original response to the incident are no longer with the company, effective Nov. 21, 2017, the date the company went public with news of the breach.

Uber said two people who didn’t work for the company accessed the data on a third-party cloud-based service that Uber uses.
