major security breach on Uber web portal

I just logged into the the Uber partner web portal (partners.uber.com) to update one of my documents and I was utterly appalled by what I found.

Instead of my own documents I found literally dozens and dozens of other people's documents--presumably documents of other Uber drivers. These included things like people's driver's licenses with their home addresses and driver's license numbers as well as W-9 forms with social security numbers.

Anyone know what is going on?

Somebody has totally messed up. It looked like all docs in their database were being dumped to the documents page. I can only imagine what just happened if someone with criminal intent did a screen capture.

Woah really?
Yes, really. I didn't take a screen shot because some most of the documents would be perfect for identity theft and I don't want anyone's personal info on this computer. Somebody seriously, seriously screwed up.

OMG really! What on earth is going on there. I have a bunch of peoples drivers licences on my account and mine are missing! Rows and Rows of other people documents.

Mine is now backed to being correct. It looks like it was randomly pulling docs. What a nightmare.

I just logged in and when I clicked on the vehicle tab it displayed hundreds of other peoples documents (licenses, registrations, insurance paperwork, etc). After logging out and logging back in the issue appears to be fixed and I can only see my information.

Seems to be fixed for me as well. Of course I logged out without saving anyone's info :smiles: . Hope the problem doesn't come back.

I'm pissed because I could not steal any personal information of others. It looks like things are back to normal
