Uber has suffered yet another data breach. Affected drivers were notified that Uber “became aware” of suspicious activity in its internal information systems in late January. After investigating, the company determines that an unauthorised third party had accessed its system between January 23rd and 31st. During that time, the threat actor had stolen data including Uber drivers’ names, social security numbers and tax identification numbers. Uber is providing 12 months for free identity monitoring services for the affected users. It said it has also secured its systems by changing all system passwords and notifying the police.
