The accounts of two Beijing users of the car-hailing Uber app were recently hacked, sparking concerns about loopholes in online financial security, Beijing Business Today reported.

A resident surnamed Zhang said her Uber account fell victim to hackers, resulting in a credit card spend totaling 147.33 yuan ($22.41) on Uber services in Shanghai, while she was actually in Beijing at the time.

After receiving two text messages about the spending from her bank on the afternoon of June 19 Steven Souza Jersey , she immediately informed the bank to freeze her credit card to avoid further loss.

Later, Uber told Zhang her account had been edited by another person and logged into from another device.

Besides, Zhang was not alone. Last week, another Beijing woman, surnamed Zhu Sergio Romo Jersey , received a payment notice from her bank, saying she had used an Uber service and paid a fare of more than 100 yuan in Zhejiang. "I didn't hail any taxi on the day. Plus I was in Beijing," she said. "It was possible that my Uber account had been hacked."

After receiving the bank information, Zhu made attempts to log into her Uber account but failed. Uber replied in an e-mail to her that the company would check related information and solve the problem as soon as possible.

Sony Pictures said "The Interview" has earned more than $15 million (9.64 million pounds) in online sales and another $2.8 million in theatres Corey Dickerson Jersey , an impressive return made possible by the publicity surrounding the cyberattack blamed on North Korea.

The raunchy comedy that depicts the assassination of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un made almost as much money through online distribution and in limited theatres in its opening weekend as it would have in a wide release that was shelved after threats from hackers.

The studio said on Sunday the film had been purchased or rented online more than 2 million times on the four days through Saturday, making it Sony Pictures' No. 1 online movie of all time.
