Lieff Cabraser is investigating widespread reports of a data breach that exposed the personal data of 57 million Uber customers and drivers, a massive data breach that Uber reportedly concealed for over a year.
The stolen data is said to include names, email addresses and telephone numbers of 50 million Uber customers, personal information of 7 million Uber drivers, as well as 600,000 driver’s license numbers. It is not currently known if additional personal information was also accessed. Irresponsibly, instead of promptly reporting the data breach when it learned of it in October 2016, Uber paid a reported $100,000 ransom to hackers to conceal the breach and failed to report it, notify its customers, or inform the general public until November 21, 2017.
