Hackers Mined Cryptocurrency through The Cloud Account Of Tesla On Amazon

An unknown hacker (or a group of hackers) got access to Tesla's account on Amazon cloud and used it to clear the cryptocurrency.

Researchers of the department of cyber security company RedLock found traces of hacking last month. Tesla's credentials were on the administrative IT console, not protected by any password. The Kubernetes console, a Google software application, helps system administrators manage virtual machines known as containers.

Hackers got access to this console and launched from it a script for mining digital coins with the help of software for mining called Stratum. The researchers reported that they could not say with certainty how many cryptocurrencies they managed to get to intruders.

RedLock reported on Monday that, according to its estimates, 58% of organizations that use public cloud services (such as Microsoft Azure or Google Cloud) are at the high risk and in fact remain open to attacks.

Illegal mining of cryptocurrency from other people's computers has become a kind of epidemic. Earlier this month, the websites of the US Federal Judiciary and the National Health Service of Great Britain were also infected with Coinhive malware and the cryptocurrency mined through their visitors' computers.
