Users’ data uncompromised during cyber attack – Uber

Uber has blamed the Lapsus$ hacking group for the recent cyber attack which led to the shutting down of its internal operations.

Ride-hailing service provider, Uber has said there is no evidence of users’ private information compromisation while it was attacked by cyber hackers.

Gadgets Africa reported that Uber shut down its internal Slack messages and internal computer systems after it discovered a security breach.

Uber who said it had informed law enforcement agencies said the cyber attack was under investigation.

However, in further development, the company in a statement on its official Twitter handle disclosed that its ride-hail and Uber Eats food delivery services, are currently “operational”.

The hack, which was discovered Thursday, forced the company to take several of its internal systems offline, including Slack, Amazon Web Services, and Google Cloud Platform.

Uber who is still investigating how a reported 18-year-old hacker, gained access to the company’s administrator internal tools said, “While our investigation and response efforts are ongoing, here is a further update on yesterday’s incident:

“We have no evidence that the incident involved access to sensitive user data (like trip history).

“All of our services including Uber, Uber Eats, Uber Freight, and the Uber Driver app are operational.

As we shared yesterday, we have notified law enforcement.
Internal software tools that we took down as a precaution yesterday are coming back online this morning.”
