The Dutch Personal Data Protection Authority is launching an investigation into a massive data breach at Uber last year. The authority only "very recently" received a report from Uber about the hack, in which personal data of 57 million people were stolen, the Volkskrant reports.
Late last year Uber was hacked and the personal data of 50 million customers and 7 million drivers were stolen. Whether any Dutch customers or drivers were among them, a spokesperson for Uber Nederland refused to say to RTL Nieuws. According to the spokesperson, the company is currently "in conversation with various authorities", and the Uber will not publish any more details about the hack until these talks are done.
