On August 26, the U.S. Justice Department announced the arrest of Russian citizen Egor igorvich kriuchkov, accusing him of deliberately planning to undermine Teslas network security. Although the attack failed, the Justice Department said it was not an ordinary hacker attempt, but a planned and organized attack.
According to the U.S. Department of justice documents, the Russian citizen contacted employees of gigafactory, Nevada, through WhatsApp in mid July and offered a reward of up to $1 million to help him insert malware into Teslas network system. However, the plan failed because Tesla employees voluntarily reported to the company and subsequently contacted the FBI. After the FBI stepped in, the hacker was eventually arrested in Los Angeles on August 22. He is currently in custody pending trial.
