Uber had announced, on the 12th of December 12, 2022, that hackers using an assumed name “Uber Leaks” gained access to more than 70,000 Uber employees’ data and was also posting stolen corporate information.

This incident was not connected to a data breach that they experienced in 2022, when they realized they were targeted in mid-September when the hacker posted on the company’s Slack group “I am a hacker and Uber has suffered a data breach” which was followed by numerous Emojis.
