Uber paid Hackers $100,000, concealed data stolen from 57 Million accounts

free equity tips on mobile

Uber Technologies Inc paid hackers $100,000 to keep secret a massive breach last year that exposed the personal information of about 57 million accounts of the ride-service provider, the company said on Tuesday.

Discovery of the U.S. company’s cover-up of the incident resulted in the firing of two employees responsible for its response to the hack, said Dara Khosrowshahi, who replaced co-founder Travis Kalanick as CEO in August.

“None of this should have happened, and I will not make excuses for it,” Khosrowshahi said in a blog post.

The breach occurred in October 2016 but Khosrowshahi said he had only recently learned of it.

The hack is another controversy for Uber on top of sexual harassment allegations, a lawsuit alleging trade secrets theft and multiple federal criminal probes that culminated in Kalanick’s ouster in June.

The stolen information included names, email addresses and mobile phone numbers of Uber users around the world, and the names and license numbers of 600,000 U.S. drivers, Khosrowshahi said.

Uber passengers need not worry as there was no evidence of fraud, while drivers whose license numbers had been stolen would be offered free identity theft protection and credit monitoring, Uber said.

Two hackers gained access to proprietary information stored on GitHub, a service that allows engineers to collaborate on software code. There, the two people stole Uber’s credentials for a separate cloud-services provider where they were able to download driver and rider data, the company said.

A GitHub spokeswoman said the hack was not the result of a failure of GitHub’s security.

“While I can’t erase the past, I can commit on behalf of every Uber employee that we will learn from our mistakes,” Khosrowshahi said.

“We are changing the way we do business, putting integrity at the core of every decision we make and working hard to earn the trust of our customers.”

Khosrowshahi said Uber had begun notifying regulators. The New York attorney general has opened an investigation, a spokeswoman said.

Uber said it had fired its chief security officer, Joe Sullivan, and a deputy, Craig Clark, this week because of their role in the handling of the incident. Sullivan, formerly the top security official at Facebook Inc and a federal prosecutor, served as both security chief and deputy general counsel for Uber.

Kalanick learned of the breach in November 2016, a month after it took place, a source familiar with the matter. At the time, the company was negotiating with the U.S. Federal Trade Commission over the handling of consumer data.

A board committee had investigated the breach and concluded that neither Kalanick nor Salle Yoo, Uber’s general counsel at the time, were involved in the cover-up, another person familiar with the issue said. The person did not say when the investigation took place.

Uber said on Tuesday it was obliged to report the theft of the drivers’ license information and had failed to do so.

Kalanick, through a spokesman, declined to comment. The former CEO remains on the Uber board of directors, and Khosrowshahi has said he consults with him regularly.

CRIME PAYS

Although payments to hackers are rarely publicly discussed, U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation officials and private security companies have told that an increasing number of companies are paying criminal hackers to recover stolen data.

“The economics of being a bad guy on the internet today is incredibly favorable,” said Oren Falkowitz, co-founder of California-based cybersecurity company Area 1 Security.

Uber has a history of failing to protect driver and passenger data. Hackers previously stole information about Uber drivers and the company acknowledged in 2014 that its employees had used a software tool called “God View” to track passengers.

Khosrowshahi said on Tuesday he had hired Matt Olsen, former general counsel of the U.S. National Security Agency, to restructure the company’s security teams and processes. The company also hired Mandiant, a cybersecurity firm owned by FireEye Inc, to investigate the breach.

The new CEO has traveled the world since replacing Kalanick to deliver a message that Uber has matured from its earlier days as a rule-flouting startup.

“The new CEO faces an unknown number of problems fostered by the culture promoted by his predecessor,” said Erik Gordon, an expert in entrepreneurship and technology at the University of Michigan’s Ross School of Business.

Icra sees growth inching up to 6.3% in Q2

free stock cash tips

Economic expansion in terms of gross value added (GVA) is expected to improve to 6.3 percent in the three months to September from 5.6 percent in the previous quarter, on the back of a rise in industrial growth. Headline GVA growth, however, is likely to trail the 6.8 percent recorded in the second quarter of FY17.

“We expect GVA growth at basic prices to record a sequential recovery to 6.3 percent in the second quarter from 5.6 percent in the first quarter, led by a broad-based pick up in industrial growth, even as agriculture, forestry and fishing and services are likely to moderate,” rating agency Icra said in a report. Industrial growth improved to over 5.8 percent in the period from 1.6 percent in the first quarter.

Icra’s principal economist Aditi Nayar said the second quarter was a period of adjustment for the s economy, following the goods and services tax (GST) rollout. “Improved corporate earnings, partly reflecting milder discounts and higher commodity prices, and a pick-up in mining and electricity, are expected to contribute to a sequential recovery in Q2, offsetting the moderation in government spends and a tepid Kharif harvest for several crops,” Nayar said.

The significant turnaround in mining, a favorable base-effect, and supportive commodity prices, should boost mining and quarrying sub-sectors to a healthy 7.5 percent in the quarter, she added. Electricity generation also recorded an improvement led by the thermal segment. However, the real estate sector remains subdued on account of weak consumer sentiment, led by factors such as the note-ban-led drag, full implementation of the Rera and GST. This will cap construction sector remaining low at near 2.5 percent in the quarter.

The agency expects services growth to ease to 7.3 percent from 8.7 percent in the first quarter. Government’s non-interest revenue spend slid sharply to 0.8 percent in Q2 from 26.8 percent in Q1, reflecting the waning effect of front-loading of spending. However, available data for 12 states indicates a pickup in their revenue spends grew to 14.1 percent in Q2 from 10.7 percent in Q1. The report expects GVA growth in public administration and defense to ease to around 6.3 percent from 9.5 percent in Q1, weighing upon the overall GVA expansion.

Asia Stocks supported by Global Growth Optimism, Dollar strong

indian stock market

South Korea’s KOSPI rose 0.25 percent, Australian stocks climbed 0.15 percent and Japan’s Nikkei advanced 1.25 percent.

Asian stocks edged higher on Tuesday as investors took heart from further evidence of strength in the global economy, while the Dollar hovered near a one-week high against its peers thanks to higher US yields and a floundering Euro.

Gains on Wall Street overnight also helped MSCI’s broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan tack on 0.15 percent.

South Korea’s KOSPI rose 0.25 percent, Australian stocks climbed 0.15 percent and Japan’s Nikkei advanced 1.25 percent.

Equity markets have enjoyed strong support this year thanks to rising corporate earnings on the back of an improving global economy.

That confidence was again on display overnight, with upbeat data in Germany helping the benchmark DAX brush off worries over the collapse of German coalition government talks.

German data showed strong industrial activity, while the Conference Board’s leading economic index for the United States rose 1.2 percent in October, double the rate economists.

Wall Street was led up by telecom and tech shares, with the Dow edging back towards record highs scaled two weeks ago.

In currencies, the Dollar index against a basket of six major currencies stood near a one-week peak of 94.104 touched overnight.

The greenback was boosted by rising bond yields, with the two-year US Treasury yield touching a nine-year high of 1.755 percent overnight.

The yield has risen as investors priced in more interest rate hikes by the Federal Reserve, while the Treasury is expected to increase debt issuance with a focus on short- and intermediate-dated maturities.

The two-year yield appears to have risen too high now, as the Fed is only likely to hike rates twice at most next year considering current trends in US wages and prices.

The Dollar was also boosted as the Euro has been weakened by political risks arising from German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s failure to form a three-way coalition government, thrusting Europe’s biggest economy into a political crisis.

Merkel, whose conservatives were weakened after they won an election in September with a reduced number of seats, said she would inform the German president that she could not form a coalition after the pro-business Free Democrats withdrew from negotiations.

The Euro stood little changed at USD 1.1736 and in close reach of a six-day low of USD 1.1722 touched on Monday.

The Dollar was steady at 112.565 yen, having bounced from a one-month low of 111.890 set overnight.

The Australian and New Zealand dollars were little changed at USD 0.7551 and USD 0.6809, respectively.

US crude futures were 0.15 percent lower at USD 56.34, extending losses from overnight when wariness towards next week’s OPEC meeting and a bounce by the Dollar hurt broader commodities.

Tech gains help propel Wall Street to record highs

free equity tips on mobile

The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 160.5 points, or 0.69 percent, to 23,590.83, the S&P 500 gained 16.89 points, or 0.65 percent, to 2,599.03 and the Nasdaq Composite added 71.76 points, or 1.06 percent, to 6,862.48.


US stocks jumped on Tuesday, pushing all three major indexes to record closing highs, led by gains in this year’s top-performing technology sector.

Healthcare stocks also rose after bullish results from medical device maker Medtronic, whose shares rose 4.8 percent after the company reported better-than-expected results and backed its full-year forecast.

The S&P technology index gained 1.2 percent, helped by a nearly 1.9 percent rise in Apple. The index has risen 38.6 percent this year, by far more than any other sector. The S&P 500 is up 16.1 percent for the year so far.

“We’re at a seasonal time of the year where investors are looking to add holdings rather than sell, so we have that upward bias,” said Bucky Hellwig, senior vice president at BB&T Wealth Management in Birmingham, Alabama.

“There’s money that’s been on the sidelines most of the year, and stocks have the best risk-adjusted profile right now. Stocks have had little volatility and the trend is upward,” he said, adding: “Tech is something people feel comfortable with right now and so you see money going into it.”

The CBOE Volatility index closed down 0.9 points at 9.73, its lowest close in more than two weeks.

The S&P 500 hit a record closing high for the first time in about two weeks. Indexes posted losses last week as investors worried whether the tax plan in Washington will see progress.

With the third-quarter earnings season winding down and no major economic data insight, trading activity slowed ahead of Thursday’s Thanksgiving holiday.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 160.5 points, or 0.69 percent, to 23,590.83, the S&P 500 gained 16.89 points, or 0.65 percent, to 2,599.03 and the Nasdaq Composite added 71.76 points, or 1.06 percent, to 6,862.48.

The small-cap Russell 2000 index rose 1 percent and also hit a record closing high.

Goldman Sachs raised its earnings estimate for S&P 500 companies in 2018 and 2019 based on expectations of US corporate tax reform, above-trend global and US economic growth and slowly rising interest rates from a low base.

Shares of Urban Outfitters gained 3.7 percent while Hormel Foods was up 3.4 percent. Both reported quarterly results.

Signet Jewelers tanked 30.4 percent after reporting a surprise quarterly loss, pulling down Tiffany 0.8 percent.

Advancing issues outnumbered declining ones on the NYSE by a 2.10-to-1 ratio; on Nasdaq, a 1.92-to-1 ratio favored advancers.

About 6.2 billion shares changed hands on US exchanges. That compares with the 6.8 billion daily average for the past 20 trading days, according to Ripples Advisory Private Limited.

The Rupee will float in a range today in the absence of any directional cues. Expected the spot USD-INR pair to trade in a range of 64.80-65.20 today.

The Dollar turned broadly lower, moving in line with declining US 10-year treasury yields and consolidating gains from Monday in light trading ahead of Thursday’s Thanksgiving holiday in the United States.

Bond market sentiment has improved dramatically after RBI’s cancellation of OMO sale. The 10-year benchmark bond yield has declined by around 16 bps to 6.90 percent.

Market participants are debating the next course of yield movement amid the focus on macroeconomic parameters, demand-supply dynamic and prospective introduction of the new 10-year government bond.

The fair value of the 10-year benchmark bond yield is between 6.75-7 percent in our opinion.
