Uber Reveals Information About Hacking Cover-up

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Uber is coming clean about its cover-up of a year-old hacking attack that stole personal information about more than 57 million of the ride-hailing service's customers and drivers.

The San Francisco company previously ousted Travis Kalanick as CEO in June after an internal investigation concluded he had built an unhealthy culture in the workplace and encouraged employees to push legal limits.

Uber's current CEO, Dara Khosrowshahi, criticized the company's handling of the data theft in a blog post that said there's no evidence the stolen information has been misused.

The heist took the names, email addresses and phone numbers of 57 million riders. The thieves also nabbed the driver's license numbers of 600,000 Uber drivers.
