UBER STATEMENT
POSTED BY KATHERINE TASSI
http://blog.uber.com/2-27-15

"Our investigation determined the unauthorized access impacted approximately 50,000 drivers across multiple states, which is a small percentage of current and former Uber driver partners."

How is 50,000 Drivers "a small percentage of current and former Uber driver partners" when according to Uber's own numbers there were ~75,000 active drivers in May 2014? Let's assume there were 150,000 former drivers in May 2014,
50,000/(75,000+150,000) = 22%!

Apparently the Driver Data Breach was due to Uber's own **** Up!

"The language has led to widespread speculation that the pages at issue were made by an Uber employee or contractor who stored a confidential authorization key on the GitHub service. One or more of the unknown John Doe defendants then found the key some time in 2014 and used it to access the Uber database. Uber officials declined to comment on the record, but the company didn't challenge the claim."

Has anyone here received any notification of Uber that they were involved in the data breach? I believe there are several active CA members who were around back them who could have possibly been affected. I believe that I could have been in that data set as well, but so far, I have not seen anything from Uber.
