Senators raise questions about Uber's response to reported 2015 data breach

The Uber app
Uber Technologies Inc has informed Britain's data protection regulator that about 2.7 million user accounts - representing the vast majority of people using the ride-hailing service in the country - were affected by a 2016 data breach.
Washington law requires both affected consumers and the attorney general's office to be notified within 45 days of the breach.
Central to the lawsuit are claims that Uber failed to protect its data and, once the breach occurred, actively went out of its way to hide this.
When Uber learned of the breach, it did not notify law enforcement, consumers, or drivers, but instead paid the hackers $100,000 to delete the data they had stolen.
About 50 million Uber passengers had their names, addresses and phone numbers breached, but the hackers also got driver's license numbers for about 7 million Uber drivers, including 10,888 in Washington, Ferguson said. Now, after some further digging, it seems that 2.7 million of those affected were Uber customers from the UK.
"We'll be working with the NCSC plus other relevant authorities in the United Kingdom and overseas to determine the scale of the breach, how it has affected people in the United Kingdom and what steps need to be taken by the firm to ensure it fully complies with its data protection obligations".

However, these leaked images of the phone also seem to match Steve Hemmerstoffer's (@OnLeaks) CAD renders from last month . The left edge of the phone is populated by the volume buttons and what can only be assumed as the dedicated Bixby button.
Separately, prosecutors in the USA have heard that Uber may have hired ex-CIA intelligence operatives to conduct surveillance on its rivals. "Consumers expect and deserve protection from disclosure of their personal information".
The data breach resulted in almost 11,000 Washington Uber drivers having their data compromised.
Ferguson's lawsuit is the first from a state, although attorneys general in New York, Missouri, Massachusetts, Connecticut and IL have begun investigations, and the city of Chicago and Cook County have filed a lawsuit.
