$1,000 for each of the 13,500 exposed drivers
I see this getting settled out of court.
Uber has been hit with a lawsuit over its failure to disclose the 2016 theft of its customer and driver records. Pennsylvania state Attorney General Josh Shapiro says the dial-a-ride broker violated state data breach law when it failed to promptly file a report and notify both drivers and passengers of the loss of data. …
The response from Uber started out well, basically "Happy to cooperate now the cunt at the top has gone". But then West reverts to Uber type:
"While we do not in any way minimize what occurred" he says, and then he proceeds to try and do exactly that by saying
"it's crucial to note that the information compromised did not include any sensitive consumer information such as credit card numbers or social security numbers, which present a higher risk of harm than driver’s license numbers."
All data leaked makes the people more vulnerable to identity theft. Sure each piece of data on it's own is harmless but with just about every .com that holds data fucking up sooner or later it doesn't take long for all the pieces to slot into place. A bad place.
