Careem announces major data breach from January
Careem announces major data breach from January: In other news this morning from the ride-sharing sector, Careem said yesterday that client data was compromised when its servers were breached back in January. The Dubai-based business said that they have “no evidence of fraud or misuse” to suggest that credit card data and passwords were stolen, claiming that the hacker only managed to obtain names, email addresses, phone numbers, and trip history. Careem said it had been investigating the incident since it became aware of it on 14 January and has asked customers to take steps, such as changing their passwords and reviewing their credit card statements, to ensure that everything is in order. The issue received some attention on Masaa DMC last night from Eman El Hosary (watch, runtime: 5:28).
