Chief Executive DaraKhosrowshahi, who replaced co-founder Travis Kalanick as CEO in August, said the company had fired two senior security officials involved in the cover-up. He was not at the helm when it happened.

Uber has always failed to protect driver and passenger data.
The hackers gained access of information that was stored on GitHub. A number of civil suits are also ongoing and the service faces bans in London and other cities due to what has been termed reckless behaviour. Uber may have violated Californian breach disclosure laws as well. While Khosrowshahi is promising change, Kalanick's place in a leadership role serves as a reminder they are keeping someone who signed off on controversial issues tied to the company.
