Uber's data breach has got the attention of Washington state attorney general Bob Ferguson, who has begun the process of filing a multi-million dollar consumer protection lawsuit against the transportation company.
The stolen information includes names, email addresses and phone numbers and - for U.S. drivers - licence numbers.
Uber said on its website on Wednesday that independent forensics experts had not seen any indication that trip location history, credit card numbers, bank account numbers or dates of birth were downloaded in the breach.
Responding to the latest news, a spokesman for the ICO said: "As part of our investigation we are still waiting for technical reports which should give full confirmation of the figures and the type of personal data that has been compromised". If the breach impacts at least 500 residents, the business must also notify the attorney general's office within 45 days.
The revelation also comes as Uber battles to overturn a decision by London's transport regulator in September to revoke its operating license.
