Uber, the ride sharing company suffered a data breach a year ago, and the address and email information of 57 million people worldwide were stolen.
Uber tried to cover it up and paid off the hackers who then supposedly deleted the data (unlikely), but that cannot be confirmed.
Please advise staff, friends and customers to watch out for phishing emails related to this Uber data theft, for instance:
“Your Uber account was compromised” and that you need to change your password, or anything else related to Uber that could be suspicious.
Never click on a link in an email, always go directly to the website yourself through your browser’s address bar.
Also, if you have an Uber account consider changing your passwords.
