Uber was able to determine the hacker's identity by directing him through the bug bounty program, which is hosted by a company called HackerOne. Uber announced on November 21 that the personal data of 57 million users, including 600,000 drivers in the United States, were stolen in a breach that occurred in October 2016.
HackerOne's public statistics on the Uber bounty program show that Uber has paid out $1,289,595 in bounties over the life of the program so far, including one for the $10,000 maximum specified by Uber to a UK-based researcher for critical bugs. The program is usually used to reward those who find system vulnerabilities, and experts told Reuters that rewarding a thief was extremely unusual.
KitGuru Says: The Uber hack was clearly handled poorly, particularly since paying off data thieves encourages others to attempt the same thing.
If the payment was actually made via HackerOne bug bounty program, it was an unusual incident as it involved a hacker who stole data.
