SAN FRANCISCO, California: US prosecutors on Thursday charged Uber’s former security chief with covering up a hack that compromised the personal information of 57 million users and drivers.
A criminal complaint accused Joseph Sullivan of trying to hide the hack from the Federal Trade Commission.
He faces a maximum sentence of eight years in prison if convicted of charges of obstructing justice and concealing a felony crime.
“Silicon Valley is not the Wild West,” US Attorney David Anderson for the Northern District of California said in a statement.
