Mining bitcoin on Elon’s dime
Tesla’s cloud account was hacked and used to mine cryptocurrency, according to a security research firm. Hackers gained access to the electric car company’s Amazon cloud account, where they were able to view “sensitive data” such as vehicle telemetry.
The researchers, who work for cybersecurity firm RedLock, discovered the breach last month while searching for which organization left credentials for an Amazon Web Services (AWS) account open to the public internet. The owner turned out to be Tesla.
