This Hacker Stole Data From 57 Million People To Pay His Bills
Uber revealed last month that it paid a hacker $100,000 to keep quiet about the fact that he stole personal data on 57 million users. Now details about the hacker’s identity are starting to come out. He is reportedly a 20-year-old from Florida who lives with his mother and wanted to help pay the bills. The payment was funneled to the hacker through Uber’s bug bounty program, which invites hackers to find vulnerabilities in pre-determined systems in exchange for cash. The hacker reportedly wasn’t a participant in the bug bounty program but instead emailed the company demanding money.
