The hacker introduced himself to Uber employees by sending a message to the  company’s internal Slack system. Screenshots of the message circulating on Twitter , “I am announcing that I am a hacker and that Uber suffered a data breach.” contains the message. The hacker then listed confidential company information he was said to have accessed and posted a message stating that Uber underpaid its drivers.

Allegedly, the message sent to employees was so frivolous that many thought it was a joke . The hacker claimed to be 18 years old and told The Post that he violated Uber for fun and was considering leaking the company’s source code.
