Stolen Uber accounts selling on dark web for $1
Two users mentioned in the report are selling Uber user accounts for $1 and $5 each

MANILA, Philippines – Uber user accounts are selling online for as little as $1 per account, according to a report from Vice’s Motherboard news site.

According to the Motherboard report, the usernames and passwords of those accounts were being sold on the dark web, a portion of the web not normally indexed on search engines.

Two users mentioned in the report were selling Uber usernames and passwords for $1 and $5 each.

The report noted that some of the accounts were active when they tried to contact those users, with two of those noted in the report surprised that their personal accounts were being sold.

Uber responded to a request for comment, and said the company “investigated and found no evidence of a breach. Attempting to fraudulently access or sell accounts is illegal and we notified the authorities about this report.”

“This is a good opportunity to remind people to use strong and unique usernames and passwords and to avoid reusing the same credentials across multiple sites and services,” Uber added. –
