Uber, an app-based taxi booking service, said that hackers have stolen private data of 57 million subscribers and drivers associated with their platform. This thing has been hidden for a year.
The company’s chief executive said in a statement: “There should not have been anything like this and I will not make any excuses for this.”
Uber has removed two members of the Information Security team from the company with immediate effect. Both of them did not give information to consumers on time that their data was stolen. He said that only recently he has come to know that any outsider downloaded a large amount of data by checking the security of the cloud server used by the company.
