Missouri, other states investigate Uber over massive data breach

NEW YORK (AP) – More U.S. states say they’re investigating Uber over the ride-hailing company’s massive data breach.

Missouri Attorney General Josh Hawley, a Republican, sent a letter Wednesday telling Uber to notify customers if their personal information might have been affected and demanding that the ride-hailing company make changes to protect data.

Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey, a Democrat, told WGBH-FM on Wednesday that she’s requesting documents and other information from Uber, adding her office is “keeping all criminal and civil options on the table.”

The company came clean on Tuesday about its cover-up of a year-old hacking attack that stole personal information of about 57 million customers and drivers.

The Missouri letter to Uber says the attorney general’s office is investigating whether the company violated any state consumer-protection or data-privacy laws.
