Even Tesla has no escape from Cryptojackers

Hackers hacked the Tesla’s AWS system through a non-password protected Kubernetes software container. The hackers then used this container to mine for CryptoCurrencies. It is not sure how long they were able to do that.

Similar attacks via AWS for BitCoin took also place in last October. The Victims then were Aviva and Gemalto.

The hackers were smart enough to build up a bit smarter system. This complicated the discovery of any suspicious activity. The hackers also used only part of the CPU so that the CPU usage did not jump through the roof, catching unwanted attention. The mining pools IP address was hidden behind a free content delivery network Cloudflare.

One curious case related to Tesla and Crypto Mining ended up in the news already in December 2017 however. A Tesla Model S owner reported he had been mining BitCoin with his car’s supercharger. He simply put the mining rig into the trunk of his Tesla Model S.

RedLock suggested some ways to prevent hacking events similar to Tesla’s CryptoJacking. Companies should Monitor:

  • Configurations
  • Network traffic
  • suspicious user behaviour

It is also a good idea to at least use a password.

 

So although Even Tesla has no escape from Cryptojackers be careful and keep an eye on your systems to avoid it yourself.
