What Happened?

Uber confirmed that it suffered a major cyberattack on September 15, 2022 when a hacker infiltrated Uber’s network and began sharing screenshots of the company’s internal systems, email dashboard, and slack server.  The attackers were able to gain access to a treasure trove of sensitive data, including internal systems, email dashboard, Slack server, security software, Windows domain, Amazon Web Services console, VMware ESXi virtual machines, and the Google Workspace email admin dashboard.[1]  “They pretty much have full access to Uber,” said Sam Curry, a security engineer at Yuga Labs who corresponded with the person who claimed to be responsible for the breach. “This is a total compromise, from what it looks like.”[2]
