Uprr, the online restaurant booking site, was hacked and its employees had to give up their credentials, a former employee has told the ABC.
Key points:The hack occurred last monthThe breach affected up to 600,000 accountsKey points:”Employees were not informed” of the breachThe employee is still employed at UprrThe employee was employed at the Burger Kings in Brisbane from December 2013 to June 2014″I had worked there for six months and had a contract that had expired at the time.
I’d worked on the site for about a year, and it was the last time I was going to work at the site,” said the employee, who did not want to be identified.”
We didn’t know what had happened.
The company hadn’t been able to provide us with any sort of update or anything.”
The employee said he was told he was fired from the burger king site last month and that he had been placed on a temporary contract.
The employee told the National Broadband Network he was contacted by an employee at Uparr in Brisbane who told him that “he would be able to get my employment back at the McDonalds restaurant, but it would take about six months”.
“The employee went on to tell me that it was because of the fact that I hadn’t given them my login credentials, which was pretty vague,” the employee said.
“The last thing he told me was that they would probably not be able, in the short term, to get me back to work.”
“It seemed like a pretty vague situation to me, but I thought, well, what if they do come back and they have access to my login, what would they do?”
The employee gave Uprr a phone number to contact if he or she wanted to talk about the situation.
“It was actually quite a frustrating experience, because I was quite happy to get back into the McDonald’s network and start working on a new project, and I was really hoping that things were going to get better,” the former employee said, adding he hoped the incident would not discourage others from working for Uprr.
“I thought they’d do something with me,” he said.
The Burger King spokesperson confirmed the company had been contacted and was investigating.
The company’s spokesman said the company was in the process of contacting up to 500 employees affected by the breach.
The breach occurred last December, when Uparr employees were asked to give their login credentials to login to the site.
Employees in Uparr were asked for login credentials and that they should keep them on file.
The information was not kept on file, and Uparr’s breach continued for several months.
At the time, Uparr said that it had alerted McDonalds and other providers to the breach, but did not disclose any information about the breach to the public.
“At no time were employees’ credentials compromised,” McDonalds Australia said in a statement.
“As part of this process, Uprr’s breach-monitoring systems have been switched off.”
McDonalds Australia has not shared any details about the incident with the media.”ABC/wires
