Uber concealed huge data breach

Recommended Posts

Uber concealed a hack that affected 57 million customers and drivers, the company has confirmed. The 2016 breach was hidden by the ride-sharing firm which paid hackers $100,000 (£75,000) to delete the data.

 

The company's former chief executive Travis Kalanick knew about the breach over a year ago, according to Bloomberg, which first broke the news. The hackers found 57 million names, email addresses and mobile phone numbers, Uber said. Within that number, 600,000 drivers had their names and licence details exposed.

Fara carduri? Slabut... :( 

 

E mai bine sa iei $100k "for an honest day's work" si sa nu aibe politia/agentiile treaba cu tine decat sa te complici cu carduri de golit, fronting, tepari, alea-alea.

Tehnic nu e Bug Bounty. Si nici legal nu e.

Uber presupun ca a fost "santajat" sa plateasca suma respectiva deci s-a dus "honest day of work".

 

Frumos! Acum toata vina cade pe Uber ca a ascuns atacul si hackerii au ramas frumos cu banii.

Spicuind cateva afirmatii -

 

"I recently learned that in late 2016 we became aware that two individuals outside the company had inappropriately accessed user data stored on a third-party cloud-based service that we use. The incident did not breach our corporate systems or infrastructure."

 

"Our outside forensics experts have not seen any indication that trip location history, credit card numbers, bank account numbers, Social Security numbers or dates of birth were downloaded. " (deci nu inseamna ca nu le-au vazut :D )

 

"We subsequently identified the individuals and obtained assurances that the downloaded data had been destroyed. We also implemented security measures to restrict access to and strengthen controls on our cloud-based storage accounts."

Ai dreptate si tu...nu faci cu un milion ce poti sa faci cu 100k :))
