Tesla Attacked By Cryptomining Malware; Servers Used To Mine

In a concerning report, a Redlock spokesperson (an informatic security firm) informed today that the Tesla cloud (the conglomerate network that Tesla uses for telemetry purposes) had been infected with a cryptocurrency malware program.
The malware siphoned processing power on the servers to mine while maintaining a low CPU usage to avoid detection. A Tesla representative declared: “The impact seems to be limited to internally-used engineering test cars only, and our initial investigation found no indication that customer privacy or vehicle safety or security was compromised in any way.”
The Redlock employee said that even if the attack had access to the personal records of owners, there is more profit in mining that in selling that info.
This kind of attack on private distributed networks is not new; the security firm said. Most of the cloud-based companies get malware-based attacks, but for the most part, those attacks are not detected. Cloud services are the most vulnerable because they rely on always-on connections to work.
