The 2016 Data Breach On AWS

Uber’s filing acknowledges the company is the subject of U.S. Department of Justice criminal inquiries and investigations, and related civil enforcement inquiries and investigations by other U.S. and foreign government agencies. Those investigations include its 2016 data breach in which a hacker gained access to the personal information of 57 million riders and drivers that was hosted on AWS’ cloud platform. In a deal announced last September with the attorneys general of all 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia, Uber was required to pay $148 million to settle the investigation after its failure to disclose the breach until a year after it was discovered and its $100,000 payment to the hacker through its bug bounty program.

“The 2016 Breach may lead to additional costly and time-consuming regulatory investigations and litigation from other government entities, as well as potentially material fines and penalties imposed by other U.S. and international regulators,” Uber stated in the filing.

In November, U.K. and Dutch regulators assessed fines totaling about $1.2 million against Uber, and France imposed a EUR 400,000 fine.

Uber said various government authorities also are examining its Greyball software tool that limits driver vehicle views available to regulatory enforcement authorities, alleged deceptive business practices and fraud, the alleged use of inappropriate means to obtain a rape victim’s medical records and its disclosures to certain investors.
