Uber : Hacked confirmed on Thursday that it’s responding to a cybersecurity incident after reports claimed that the company’s internal systems have been breached.

According to the New York Times, the ride-hailing giant discovered the breach on Thursday and has taken several of its international communications and engineering systems offline.

The alleged hacker, who is reportedly an 18-year-old, claimed that he has administrator access to company tools including Amazon Web Services and Google Cloud Platform.

In a Twitter post, the company confirmed that its internal systems have been compromised.

The Uber attacker hacked reportedly used social engineering to compromise an employee’s Slack account, persuading them to hand over a password that allowed them access to Uber’s systems.

The Slack message from the alleged hacker was so brazen that many Uber employees appear to have initially thought it was a joke, according to the Washington Post.
