Uber paid hackers $100,000 to keep quiet about stealing your info from Uber [telecom]

By Alison Griswold

In October 2016, hackers stole the personal data of 50 million riders and about 7 million drivers from Uber. Instead of reporting the breach, the company paid $100,000 to hackers to delete the data and keep quiet, in what became a yearlong cover-up.

The breach, made public in an explosive new report from Bloomberg, led this week to the ousting of Uber's chief security officer, Joe Sullivan, and one of his deputies who worked to keep the attack quiet.
