Uber Technologies Inc. failed to notify 57 million users that their data was exposed in a breach, according to a company blog post published Tuesday, which was confirmed by a source close to the matter.

As a result, two employees tasked with handling the response process have left the company, including Uber in-house attorney Craig Clark, who reported to the company’s chief security officer, an article from Bloomberg said. The employees reportedly played roles in keeping the breach quiet, which, according to Bloomberg, “included a $100,000 payment to the attackers.”
