confirmed on Wednesday by the company.

Not only this, it has also been revealed that Uber (uber) had given a million dollars (about 65 lakh rupees) to the hackers to
eliminate data. On the other hand, Uber CEO Dara Khosrovovshahi said that it should not have happened and I will not give any
sort of cleaning to this. It is worth mentioning that Dara Khosrovovshahi has joined the rest in August 2017.

According to media reports, Travis Calanik, Co-Founder of Uber, had information about data theft, but told to not expose
anything until Khosrovovishi became a new boss. Khosrovostshahi said that the information security team of the two members did
not give any alerts regarding the data being stolen from the company.

He said, “Recently I came to know that the people of the outskirts of the company got the data by linking the server and
downloaded many important details. Uber also acknowledged that the hackers who stole, include the names of people, email
address, mobile number of riders who sit in Uber, names of drivers and all licenses.

According to media reports, as soon as the data was found to be theft, then it was a co-founder of Uber and later the expelled
Chief Travis Calanik was given this information.
On this whole issue, Khosrovostyshi said that you can ask me what does it mean to give information about all these things after
one year? I also faced the same question. I asked to check it. At the same time he had also asked how can the matter be dealt
with? What I learned is that the reason for the success of the recovery was not taken due to the right action.
