According to Bloomberg, Uber was hacked more than a year ago and paid the hackers to keep the breach a secret.

Uber is no stranger to the news. The latest headlines state that hackers stole the personal information for 57 million customers and drivers for the Uber Technologies company.

The company recently fired Chief Security Officer, Joe Sullivan and one of his deputies for hiding the breach.

The attack happened last year October 2016. Stolen data consisted of names, email addresses and phone numbers of 50 million Uber riders around the world, the company told Bloomberg on Tuesday.

In addition, the personal information of about 7 million drivers were also compromised. This included 600,000 U.S. driver’s license numbers. According to Uber, no Social Security numbers, credit card details, trip location info or other data were taken.
