Uber breach affected 2.7 million Britons

Mayor of London Sadiq Khan said in a statement: "This latest shocking development about Uber will alarm millions of Londoners whose personal data could have been stolen by criminals".

Chicago Corporation Counsel Ed Siskel, who filed the complaint in conjunction with Foxx, said that companies should not be permitted to violate the law by "failing to safeguard personal information and then covering it up, preventing those impacted from taking steps to protect themselves", the station reported.

The complaint alleges that "Uber executives were aware of the breach as early as November 2016", but nonetheless failed to provide notification until November 21, 2017-far exceeding the 45-day deadline.

IL is suing Uber over a year-old data breach that affected millions of users and drivers, NBC Chicago reported. With investigations under way by the attorneys general of Connecticut, Illinois, Massachusetts, Missouri, New Mexico, and NY, there will likely be more on this front soon.

The compromised data included the names and drivers of about 600,000 drivers in the United States and some personal information, such as names, email addresses, and mobile phone numbers of 57 million Uber users around the world. If that penalty were applied to each of the affected drivers in Washington, it would total almost $22 million in penalties. "Consumers expect and deserve protection from disclosure of their personal information". With the announcement, San Francisco-based Uber said it concealed the breach for a year after paying $100,000 in ransom for the stolen information to be destroyed. Under such a theory, he argues that Uber should face a penalty of several millions of dollars.

It has also placed an information page within the Accounts and Payment Options menu within the Help section of the Uber app. Uber failed to disclose a massive breach previous year, which disclosed the data of some 57 million users, the company's new chief executive officer said last week, according to Reuters.

The lawsuit was filed Tuesday in King County Superior Court.

"We are monitoring the affected accounts and have flagged them for additional fraud protection", the company said.
