Uber paid hackers to keep data breach quiet

Uber is facing investigation after revealing that it suffered a massive data breach affecting 57 million people - but kept the details quiet for more than a year.

The hackers say they found the data on an Amazon cloud server used by the ride-sharing company.

They claim they were paid a $100,000 ransom to keep the breach quiet.
