So this hacking in London thing.  I read this article about who was hacking and whom were impacted, but I still don’t get it. How were the drivers hacking the system? I can’t imagine drivers being savvy enough to hack Uber’s servers. How would they have the means to do so and why would it even be worth it?  Was it being executed by some organized syndicate?

    Hacks happen.  I don’t know how easy it was by individual drivers but this type of rule skirting happens all the time. So many in US drive using other people Uber apps for example.

    To the public it doesn’t really matter how it happened. It just matters that it happened and they lost all credibility. Now everyone looks at it as how they are not fit to service millions of citizens.

    I’m disgusted by the TFL. You know the real story here is that they wanted to kick Uber out and bring back the Black Cars. It’s per the aristocrats, Republicans, mafia, etc. 

    This hacking story is being blown out of proportion and we don’t even know if it really happened or how wide spread it was. Black Cars have had its share of problems but no one is talking about them. This is just some scheme contrived by the people upstairs.

    Drivers are not hacking the system, it's very easy to create accounts on burner phones, it's been done in every city for a long time, it's just now coming to the surface.
