Intruder claims to have hack Uber may not cause much damage. Car sharing companies have determined that there is “no evidence” that the perpetrator had access to sensitive user data, such as trip history. All services are operating normally, and the company has restored the right to use internal software that it took down when it discovered the breach.
Uber did not say more about the reported perpetrators or the nature of the incident. Computer Bleeping say had seen screenshot from the hacker purporting to show Uber’s IT resources, including the Amazon Web Services console, the Google Workspace console, and virtual machines. The perpetrators also gained access to Uber’s bug bounty program, suggesting they may be aware of security holes that the company hasn’t necessarily fixed.
Account information seems to be safe. However, there are concerns that an attacker could gain access to the source code or could sell the bounty data to other hackers who could use the vulnerability for their own campaigns. There will likely be setbacks in the coming days, even if Uber passengers don’t have any immediate reason to worry.
