Once again, it has been revealed that Uber has been compromised. On this occasion, the security services have been attacked by a hacker who has set out to expose the poor stability of this company’s servicesand protest against the current treatment of drivers.
Unlike the attack it suffered in 2016, and revealed five years later, this time the company was clear, and through its Twitter account revealed that on September 15 they suffered an attack that left the company exposed. This information came into the hands of Uber after the hacker accessed the company’s Slack, and revealed his intentions.
“Currently, we are responding to a cybersecurity incident. We are in contact with law enforcement and will post additional updates here as they become available.”

Rather than exposing user data, it appears that this attack is focused on exposing the company. According to The Washington Post, the hacker has access to a large number of internal company networks. Here it is mentioned that drivers who tried to access the company’s media were redirected to a pornographic page.
Through a publication on the HackerOne site, the alleged person in charge pointed out that Uber’s security is “painful”, and all this was achieved through an employee’s business email. Along with this, it has been pointed out that this is a form of proposal for the treatment given to drivers during the pandemic. On related issues, Samsung has also suffered a hacker attack.
