Uber paid hackers $100K after they stole data on 57 million users

By CNN Money

Uber says it paid hackers $100,000 after they stole data last year on 57 million of its users.

The startup did not disclose the attack until Tuesday, adding a potential cover up to a list of recent corporate controversies.

Uber said that two people outside the company accessed the personal information of 57 million Uber users in late 2016, including names, email addresses and phone numbers. The license numbers of around 600,000 drivers in the United States were included in the breach.
