"The Ripley program was a closely guarded secret at Uber — many staff in offices being raided were unaware of its existence. The system enabled staff to remotely change passwords and “otherwise lock up data on company-owned smartphones, laptops, and desktops as well as shut down the devices”, to thwart Police raids."

    Imagine where Uber would be today if they played by the rules. I actually think Lyft may have beaten them if it weren't for all of Uber's antics.

    Wow, they used this program at least 2 dozen times? Actually on second thought, I'm not surprised.

    "Ward Spangenberg, made a sworn statement saying he was part of an “incident response team” that helped remotely erase data when Revenu Québec raided the company’s Montreal offices in 2015."
