"As part of our investigation, we are still waiting for technical reports which should give full confirmation of the figures and the type of personal data that has been compromised".

Under Washington's revised data breach law, businesses are required to notify consumers within 45 days if their personal information was accessed by an unauthorized person. Nevertheless, there's no denying the fact that quite a lot of people have been impacted by this breach.

In a statement released on Tuesday, the firm said that hackers made off with names, email addresses, and phone numbers of those affected in October 2016, adding that location history, credit card numbers and dates of birth were not obtained in the massive data breach.

The so-called Article 29 Working Party said on its website it "established a taskforce on the UBER data breach case", led by the Dutch data protection authority that will include members of the French, Italian, Spanish, Belgian, German and British authorities. And in Italy, the only European Union country to have announced a full-blown investigation into the Uber incident before Wednesday, the fine may be more than $1 million, with the amount being related to the number of Italians who were affected.

Uber is being hit with a class-action lawsuit by a law firm representing Albertans whose personal information was compromised when the ride-hailing company suffered a data breach.

The Dutch DPA separately said it was still investigating Uber's notification of the breach.

The story was first broken by Bloomberg, which reported that Uber not only sought to cover up the incident but also paid hackers $100,000 (£75,000) to delete the data they had stolen.

Perhaps the most notable aspect of Attorney General Ferguson's complaint is its damages theory.

The lawsuit could see penalties of $2,000 per violation for failing to notify those affected and the attorney general's office. With investigations under way by the attorneys general of Connecticut, Illinois, Massachusetts, Missouri, New Mexico, and NY, there will likely be more on this front soon.
