The breach, which the company disclosed last week involving 57 million users worldwide, saw names, mobile phone numbers and email addresses compromised, the company told UK's Information Commissioner's Office (ICO). Now, after some further digging, it seems that 2.7 million of those affected were Uber customers from the UK.
"Uber users who notice anything suspicious can contact Uber's Help Centre by tapping "Help" in the app, then "Account and Payment Options" "I have an unknown charge" "I think my account has been hacked". With investigations under way by the attorneys general of Connecticut, Illinois, Massachusetts, Missouri, New Mexico, and NY, there will likely be more on this front soon.
Washington Attorney-General Bob Ferguson said that because the drivers' information that was accessed included names and license numbers, state law required Uber to notify them and his office within 45 days. If that penalty were applied to each of the affected drivers in Washington, it would total almost $22 million in penalties. When a data breach puts people at risk, businesses must inform them, " Ferguson said in a news release.
Had the incident taken place after the introduction of the EU's General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) next May, the penalties could have been more severe. "There is no excuse for keeping this information from consumers". With the announcement, San Francisco-based Uber said it concealed the breach for a year after paying $100,000 in ransom for the stolen information to be destroyed.
Uber failed to disclose the massive breach at the time, the company's new chief executive officer said last week.
