Default Uber hit with criticism of “useless” two-factor authentication

This article comes from Sophos' Naked Security:

Uber hit with criticism of “useless” two-factor authentication – Naked Security
Quote:
Uber is in the computer security news again, this time over allegations that its 2FA is no good.

ZDNet, for instance, doesn’t mince its words at all*, leading with the headline, “Uber ignores security bug that makes its two-factor authentication useless.”
*The link in that quote actually goes to an updated ZDNet article on the subject.

More from Sophos' Naked Security an the subject:

Uber data breach aided by lack of multi-factor authentication – Naked Security
Quote:
There are two strands to this incident – the company’s handling of the breach of 57 million customer and driver records once it found out about it, and the technical failings that allowed it to happen in the first place.
