Uber, FTC agree to new settlement terms over data breach

By tcavadias Staff ·
In October 2016, hackers stole names, email addresses, and phone numbers of 57 million Uber riders around the world, along with data on more than 7 million drivers, which included over 600,000 drivers' license records.

But instead of alerting users of the breach, the company paid the hackers $100,000 to delete the data and to keep details of the breach quiet.

Uber is now required to submit every audit report of its privacy program to the FTC, and faces civil penalties if it fails to disclose another breach.

Has this breach caused you to loose your faith in Uber? Do you still use Uber? Let us know in the comments below!
