There are many misgivings regarding the app-based taxi company Uber. One of those is a belief that Uber’s databases will get hacked.
Apparently, they already did. Get hacked.
Uber found out four months after the fact and kept quiet about it for months afterward. Last Friday, it finally came clean. In the New York Post, you can read more about Uber getting hacked.
Uber has meanwhile started a lawsuit against the hacker, identifying him or her as John Doe. This is also how you can sometimes take action against anonymous internet trolls as the FindLaw blog explains.
