Uber’s Secret Tool for Keeping the Cops in the Dark - Bloomberg
Most tech companies don’t expect police to regularly raid their offices, but Uber isn’t most companies. The ride-hailing startup’s reputation for flouting local labor laws and taxi rules has made it a favorite target for law enforcement agencies around the world. That’s where this remote system, called Ripley, comes in. From spring 2015 until late 2016, Uber routinely used Ripley to thwart police raids in foreign countries, say three people with knowledge of the system. Allusions to its nature can be found in a smattering of court filings, but its details, scope, and origin haven’t been previously reported.

@ErrataRob on the Uber "bug bounty"
1/ As much as I defend Uber, this NYTimes story is wrong: ...
2/ The "vuln" was leaving login credentials exposed on GitHub, which the person used to steal customer account information. This is worth only their max bounty of $10k.
3/ Using stolen credentials to hack in and steal customer account information, then demand money before deleting such information is indeed "extortion".
