Uber’s been hacked by an 18 year old, go figure

It appears Uber has been hacked by an 18-year-old. As discovered Thursday, the hijacker managed to gain full admin access to the company’s AWS, Duo, OneLogin, G Suite, VMware vSphere domain accounts, and more. They even bagged Uber’s source code and have sent out screenshots to prove it.

Not a great time for Uber then. But what really gets me is how people are meant to have reacted when asked to stop interacting with the hacker on Slack—if you work in IT you might need to ask a friend to hold you back for this one.
