Uber hack - don't tell anyone!

Meanwhile, Anthony Glees, of the University of Buckingham, said: "Given the obvious level of organisation and the patterns of fraudulent use it seems reasonable to believe that Russian hackers obtained these users" data and have traded it on the dark web'. The company is said to have fired two executives who were involved in the response to the breach and its subsequent cover-up, including chief security officer Joe Sullivan.

Uber said earlier this month it had struck an agreement to allow Japan's SoftBank Group to invest up to $10 billion, most of it by buying shares from existing investors.

"The Uber brand is about as tarnished as it gets in 2017", said Matt Rizzetta, CEO of the brand communications agency North 6th.

A year later, he said, Uber finds itself even worse off than it was after the hack. Reports about widespread sexual harassment and discrimination at the company led founder/CEO Travis Kalanick to resign in June. Kalanick has declined to comment.

Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey, a Democrat, told WGBH-FM on Wednesday that she's requesting documents and other information from Uber, adding her office is "keeping all criminal and civil options on the table".

Zardari refuses to join hands with Nawaz Sharif
NAB had filed three references on Sept 8 against Sharif and his family, and another reference against Finance Minister Ishaq Dar. Despite being exempted from appearance, the former Premier and his daughter attended the court hearing.

Missouri Attorney General Josh Hawley, a Republican, sent a letter Wednesday telling Uber to notify customers if their personal information might have been affected and demanding that the ride-hailing company make changes to protect data.

"It's always the company's responsibility to identify when United Kingdom citizens have been affected as part of a data breach and take steps to reduce any harm to consumers", ICO deputy commissioner James Dipple-Johnstone said in a statement.

And yesterday, Lauren Rees, from Bromley in south London, tweeted: 'I knew I wasn't going bloody insane when my details kept changing to a Russian phone number and details Uber support were not helpful'.

New CEO Dara Khosrowshahi acknowledges Uber made some mistakes in handling the breach.

Attorneys general offices in at least six USA states along with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) have announced they are looking into the matter.

The girl then went back to her hostel and sent an SMS to her twin who was also writing an exam. Likewise, another boy was recently shamed publicly by the university staff, they alleged.

NY law requires that companies notify the Attorney General and consumers if data is stolen. It could also ask the company to provide access to or correct personal data of customers.

Uber said that it has been in touch with the FTC and several states to discuss a hack and pledged to cooperate.

The ride-sharing company will likely be fined for failing to disclose the breach but it could also face legal claims from the riders and drivers affected by it.

The FTC's statement is significant because Uber only settled a prior investigation into security and privacy complaints dating back to 2014 and 2015 and carried out by the agency this summer, when it agreed to 20 years of external audits and to abide by various conditions in the consent order. "It's a monitoring issue and one of strategy and reputation".

The episode apparently took place late previous year. Sullivan, formerly the top security official at Facebook Inc and a federal prosecutor, served as both security chief and deputy general counsel for Uber.
