You can potentially understand the panic and attempt to hush it up - especially in light of how much controversy Uber has courted in the past few years - but with the information of so many users at stake who trust the company, this is a awful failure and was a huge mistake which may be extremely hard to recover from.
A payment of $100,000 through a bug bounty programme would be extremely unusual, with one former HackerOne executive saying it would represent an "all-time record".

Reuters' sources said that ex-CEO Travis Kalanick was aware of both the breach and payment when he led the company. Rewards for identifying bugs in code are more normally in the range of $5,000 - $10,000. Uber directed him into the bug bounty program and used the process to uncover the hacker's identity.
One source described the hacker as "living with his mum in a small home trying to help pay the bills", adding that members of Uber's security team did not want to pursue prosecution of an individual who did not appear to pose a further threat.
