Too Long; Didn't Read

An 18-year-old hacker breached Uber's data system on September 16. Uber staff thought it was a joke and made GIFs to meme the situation. The staff didn't know such news would make its way to the front pages of the New York Times. The teenage hacker social-engineered his way into the system, causing MFA fatigue. While experts have weighed in on the breach, providing solutions, Uber's shares still reel from the impact.
