Uber to Pay $148 Million for 2016 Breach Cover Up

The California Attorney General’s office said this week that Uber has agreed to pay $148 million in relation to its 2016 data breach which it tried to cover up.

The ride-sharing giant, which was hit by a breach that compromised the personal data of 57 million riders and drivers around the world, had reportedly paid hackers $100,000 to clean up evidence that would expose the breach.

The amount Uber promised to pay will be distributed in various amounts across all states and Washington, DC.
