Uber fined for losing UK Customer Data

Uber have been fined £385,000 this week after they lost customer data of UK customers.

The breach happened in 2016 and Uber did nothing to inform affected customers.

Half a million Android users tricked into downloading malware

Half a million Android users downloaded malware from games in the Google Play Store.

All of the apps were made by the same developer, and two of them were featured on Google's app store.

Google have since pulled the plugs on the apps.

Azure breaks down again

Microsoft's cloud platform for businesses broke down again this week, leaving users unable to access their services. Second week running. To make things even worse - the multi-factor authentication platform also fell down at the same time. Meaning accounts were no longer secure during the downtime.
