Transportation company Uber has released a statement about 2016's data hack, stating that about 380,000 users from Singapore have been affected. The US-based cab service stated on Friday, December 15, that the credit card or bank account details of its users have not been compromised. However, that does not make the risk any less real.A statement uploaded on Uber's Help page explains that the figure of 380,000 users is not definite, rather it is "an approximation rather than an accurate and definitive count because, sometimes, the information we get through the app or our website that we use to assign a country code is not the same as the country where a person actually lives."According to the company, immediate steps were taken to ensure that the data of its customers is protected when a breach was detected. Uber says it shut down unauthorised access and made its security system stronger. The breach is still being investigated by local authorities.Also Read: From WannaCry to Uber data … [Read more...] about 380,000 Uber Singapore users affected by security breach; Are you one of them?
