Risking further sanctions.

Bloomberg reports that a data breach of Uber in 2016 destroyed names, phone numbers and e-mail addresses of over 20 million Uber users in the United States. According to The Federal Trade Commission (FTC), the transport service kept the data interruption hidden.

Must prevent it from happening again
In 2014, Uber experienced a similar burglary, which was investigated by the FTC last year and during this investigation, Uber did not make available the information about the recent case.

The FTC states in a statement that Uber has misled customers when it comes to the security and privacy practices. The body will now ensure that this does not happen from Uber again. Passenger transport services risk stricter penalties if kept more hidden in the future, as well as the sanctions associated with the previous data entry.

Bloomberg writes that attackers were given access to the names and e-mail addresses of 25.6 million US Uber users who also include 22.1 million names and mobile phone numbers and 607,000 names and driver's license numbers.
