LTFRB sets probe into Uber data breach

Information about 2016 Data Security Incident | Uber Rider Help

Chicago Corporation Counsel Ed Siskel, who filed the complaint in conjunction with Foxx, said that companies should not be permitted to violate the law by "failing to safeguard personal information and then covering it up, preventing those impacted from taking steps to protect themselves", the station reported. At the time, the company paid the hackers $100,000 and disguised the breach as a "bug bounty" to keep it quiet. Seven million drivers had their details stolen during the breach, alongside 50 million active Uber users.

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 complaint alleges that "Uber executives were aware of the breach as early as November 2016", but nonetheless failed to provide notification until November 21, 2017-far exceeding the 45-day deadline.

Judge Grants Waymo's Request To Postpone Trade Secret Trial Against Uber
Waymo is now asking for further information from Uber and an investigation into the contents of Jacobs's letter, Gizmodo reports. Part of that settlement can be withheld if Jacobs violates a provision requiring him not to say anything that would harm Uber.

The company disclosed the breach last week.

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. Uber is expected to begin reaching out to those affected shortly to notify them.

Ferguson's lawsuit is the first from a state, although attorneys general in New York, Missouri, Massachusetts, Connecticut and IL have begun investigations, and the city of Chicago and Cook County have filed a lawsuit. Uber waited more than a year, Ferguson said.
