In the United States, the Russian citizen Egor Kryuchkov was formally charged with planning a cybercrime. The suspect attempted to fly out of the country.
According to the case file, 27-year-old Yegor Kryuchkov and his accomplices were going to inject malware into Tesla's computer system. To do this, the Russian decided to bribe one of her workers in the state of Nevada. The amount of the promised reward was $ 1,000,000. The data, which the hackers planned to get access, they were going to use for the purpose of blackmail.
From the state of Nevada, where Yegor Kryuchkov originally settled, he was forced to leave for Los Angeles when FBI officers approached him. Through his friend, a compatriot bought a ticket and tried to fly out of the country.
Earlier, expert Alexander Timofeev said that hackers can use a Bluetooth connection to steal information.
