    Hackers stole the personal data of 57 million customers and drivers from Uber, a massive breach that the company concealed for more than a year.

    This week, the ride-hailing company ousted Joe Sullivan, chief security officer, and one of his deputies for their roles in keeping the hack under wraps.

    The hack took place in 2016 and Uber paid the hackers $100,000 to keep it quiet..... Naughty Uber !

    I hear on the radio the Australian Government together with a number of other governments around the world are getting ready to sue Uber for not disclosing the breach, hiding the story for almost a year.

    More fun time for Uber lawyers.... the world over. Maybe they should abandon the ride-share business and start an international law firm.
