The American company Tesla, the manufacturer of electric vehicles and power storage solutions, became a victim of hackers: having found a vulnerability in the Tesla account on Amazon, scammers got access to the cloud infrastructure of the company and used its resources for the cryptocurrency mining. The hackers found the company specializing in cyber security company RedLock. Hackers took advantage of a vulnerability in the Kubernetes service available from the Internet due to lack of password protection, which contained information for accessing the Tesla cloud store in the Amazon Web Service.
The rapid growth of the rate of cryptocurrencies makes more people engaged in mining. So, one of the members of the online community "Tesla Owner Worldwide" on Facebook offered to use electric power and built-in Tesla computer in electric vehicles for the cryptocurrency Mining. In particular, it was proposed to use a powerful computer responsible for the autopilot in the Tesla for the computing platform. However, this idea was not implemented because of security concerns.
