Personal data on 50,000 Uber drivers exposed in breach

The names and license plate numbers of about 50,000 Uber drivers were compromised in a security breach last year, the company revealed Friday.

Uber discovered a possible breach of its systems in September, and a subsequent investigation revealed an unauthorized third party had accessed one of its databases four months earlier, the company said.

The files accessed held the names and license plate numbers of about 50,000 current and former drivers, which Uber described as a ?small percentage? of the total. About 21,000 of the affected drivers are in California. The company has several hundred thousand drivers altogether.

White House privacy proposal aims to give you control over your data

U.S. businesses that collect personal data would be required to describe their privacy and security practices and give consumers control over their personal information under a proposed privacy bill of rights released Friday by President Barack Obama?s administration.

The proposal would also require companies and nonprofit groups to collect and retain only the personal data they need to operate.

However, the proposal allows industry groups to submit their own codes of conduct to the Federal Trade Commission and shields companies that follow those codes from FTC enforcement actions.

Plans submitted Friday to the Mountain View City Council include lightweight block-like structures?not stationary concrete buildings?that can be moved around as the company invests in new product areas. These areas now include self-driving cars, solar-powered drones and robots.

Ractive aims to bring Web programming to the masses

The developers of a JavaScript library for building interactive user interfaces are hoping their work will make Web programming more accessible for part-time programmers.

The library, Ractive.js, provides a set of capabilities typically found in complex Web application frameworks, which require a fair amount of expertise to manage, said Rich Harris, one of the creators of Ractive and a digital journalist at the British newspaper The Guardian.

Harris, who presented the technology at the Association for Computing Machinery?s Applicative conference in New York, demonstrated the capabilities of Ractive and discussed the current state of tools for building Web sites, which he described as too abstract and complex for non-programmers wanting to create their own sites.
