Zubenina said that anonymized phone numbers and data on trips made using this service are now in the public domain. She admitted that most of the phone numbers could already be published in the public domain by the leaked data database, which apparently appeared in vast information leaks from other services, although this doesn’t reduce the firm’s level of responsibility.

Since December 23, the astrologer has conducted an internal investigation to determine what other data attackers might have. On the same day, the telegram channel Information Leaks reported that more than 4,000 photographs (in JPG format) of Citymobil driver passports are in public domain. On December 27, the same channel reported that on Monday, 3,910,592 phone numbers of customers, presumably Citymobil, were made public and 80,7 thousand telephone numbers of its drivers were sold.

Zubenina told Interfax that the company does not store a wide list of users’ personal data on servers, but seeks to limit its use to anonymized data that would suffice to realize the purpose of the processing. Although she didn’t have this, company’s management apologizes to every user and driver of partner parks who publicly shared their personal data. The top manager of Citymobil said the attackers threatened to give more extended information to the public.

Zubenina also said that, en application of the law, Citymobil sent a message to Roskomnadzor within 24 hours of reporting the data leak and a letter to his office regarding the measures taken to protect the information within 72 hours.
