The New York Attorney General has launched an investigation into Uber’s massive breach.
The Hill reported: The New York attorney general has opened an investigation into a massive 2016 breach at Uber that exposed data on 57 million customers.
The breach first came to light on Tuesday when Bloomberg reported that executives at the ride-share company paid hackers to delete the stolen data in an effort to cover up the incident.
Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi said in a blog post that she had only recently become aware of the breach, in which hackers gained access to personal information on 57 million Uber users worldwide as well as the names and driver's license numbers of roughly 600,000 U.S. drivers.
The personal information stolen included names, email addresses, and phone numbers; the company said it has no evidence that trip location history, credit card numbers, bank account numbers, Social Security numbers or birth dates were accessed.
