Ride-hailing platform Uber said on Friday it was under a cyber attack and was investigating the data breach with law enforcement.
Some of Uber’s internal systems were reportedly hacked in the data breach, and some screenshots on Twitter suggest the hackers had access to the company’s internal data.
“We are currently responding to a cybersecurity incident. We are in contact with law enforcement and will post more updates here as they become available,” Uber tweeted.
The New York Times first reported on the Uber breach.
An Uber employee posted that he was told to stop using Slack and that “every time I request a site, I’m taken to a page with pornographic images” and “fuck you” messages.
Another Twitter user apparently posted a screenshot of the hacker, saying: “I declare that I am a hacker and Uber suffered a data breach. Slack was stolen…”
The hacker reportedly said he broke into Uber’s systems because “their security is weak.”
“Someone hacked into Uber employee’s HackerOne account and commented on all tickets. You may have access to all Uber HackerOne reports,” posted a bug bounty hunter named Sam Curry.
