    Uber was hacked. 50 million rider accounts were accessed. 7 million drive accounts as well. And Uber paid $100,000 to cover it all up.
    Uber has revealed that, in late 2016, two hackers stole email addresses and phone numbers from Uber rider accounts, and the license numbers from U.S. driver accounts. Uber claims no credit card information, location data, or social security numbers were compromised. Yet, instead of disclosing the attack when it happened, Uber paid the hackers $100,000 to delete the data and keep it quiet.
    From Bloomberg:
    Uber said it believes the information was never used but declined to disclose the identities of the attackers.
