The former Uber security chief has been charged for ‘paying hackers $100,000 to cover up a data breach’ that exposed email and phone numbers of 57 million drivers and passengers, Your Content has learned.

Federal prosecutors on Thursday charged Joe Sullivan, 52, with obstructing justice and concealing a felony over the 2016 hack.

‘Concealing information about a felony from law enforcement is a crime,’ Deputy Special Agent in Charge Craig D. Fair said in a release.

‘While this case is an extreme example of a prolonged attempt to subvert law enforcement, we hope companies stand up and take notice.

‘Do not help criminal hackers cover their tracks. Do not make the problem worse for your customers, and do not cover up criminal attempts to steal people’s personal data.’
