Tesla gets targeted with ransomware

In a recent article, Tesla auto maker got hit with ransomware and it was confirmed by someone who a lot of people who know of may recognize the name. The article is entitled Elon Musk confirms that attempted Russian ransomware attack was aimed at Tesla and Elon Musk is definitely a familiar name to a lot of people perhapse.

The story is quite interesting. A russian man was arrested after an employee went along with the scheme and also told the company about what was going on.

Instead of going along with the plan, and taking the chance to walk off with a cool $1 million, the still-unnamed Tesla worker reported the plan to the
company, which went to the FBI. Egor Igorevich Kriuchkov, 27, was arrested on Aug. 22 on a single count of conspiring to intentionally cause harm to a
protected computer. Agents contacted Kriuchkov before the plan was complete and convinced him to drive to Los Angeles, Calif. for a meeting, where he was
arrested, according to the FBI complaint.

There are links to various things within this article, so make sure you get yourself caught up on this one. There are good employees that work for you, even if the situation is bad. Whoever this employee is, they should be commended for reporting this to the boss instead of walking off with money that might not be good money.
