Uber Data Breach Litigation
Townsend, et. al., v Uber Technologies, Inc.
United States District Court for the Northern District of California, San Francisco Division
Case No. 3:17-cv-06756
Keller Rohrback L.L.P. filed suit on November 22, 2017, related to a massive data breach of sensitive personal information from the ride-sharing company Uber.
The breach reportedly exposed the names, email addresses, and phone numbers of 50 million customers from around the world. The personal information of about 7 million drivers was also compromised, including some driver’s license numbers.
The breach reportedly occurred in October 2016 but is just now being made public. Uber’s troubling response initially to the hack was to keep it quiet by offering to pay $100,000 to the hackers.
“By choosing not to disclose this massive data breach and attempting to mitigate the breach by paying the hackers to destroy the data, Uber has essentially rolled the dice with its customers’ and drivers’ personal identities,” said Cari Campen Laufenberg, a partner at Keller Rohrback L.L.P. “What’s more, it has done so for more than a year–denying these victims the crucial opportunity to take timely steps to mitigate the disclosure of their private information.”
If you are concerned that your personal information was breached and would like to know more about your rights, please contact attorney Cari Campen Laufenberg at 888.684.6575 or via email at .
