PostSubject: Good for them: Uber disrupted government investigations for almost 2 years with a 'secret' system called 'Ripley'   Thu Jan 11, 2018 8:50 pm

A Bloomberg report claims that Uber had a system it used to disrupt government investigations.

   Called Ripley, the system allowed a remote team to lock, shut off, and change passwords on devices the company feared would be targeted by investigators in foreign countries.

   The company allegedly used the system at least 24 times from spring 2015 until late 2016, but the report does not claim that Uber used the system for any US offices.



New Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi has been forced to play damage control as the company tries to repair a reputation damaged by countless scandals and lawsuits.

Now, a Bloomberg report alleges that the company had a system it used to disrupt government investigations.

In the report, people with knowledge of Uber's operations say that the system, called Ripley, was a "closely guarded secret." It allowed a remote team to lock, shut off, and change passwords on devices the company feared would be targeted by investigators in foreign countries. The company allegedly used the system at least 24 times from spring 2015 until late 2016. The report does not claim that Uber used the system for any US offices.
