    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.

    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.
     
  7. Just found the same.....someone else's docs not mine

    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.
     
  14. Logged out then back in, back to normal for now

    Seems to be fixed for me as well. Of course I logged out without saving anyone's info :) . 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

    SECOTIMESECOTIME would you mind inboxing or e-mailing the screenshots to me, to be passed on to a tech reporter who's written extensively about Uber's hacked accounts.
    Thank you!
