With the boom that is undergoing digital economy, cybercrime has also gained ground.Hackers have made progress with their deceptive schemes by stealing money from user portfolios.However, their target is already the cloud computing networks of large industries used in cloud service delivery.A report released on Tuesday by Cloud Security Intelligence team of RedLock security firm revealed that hackers had managed to infiltrate Tesla's cloud computer network to dig in cryptographic coins.Hackers had access to the cloud AWS cloud environment by using a Kurbernetes container with unprotected password software.This container was then used to dig out cryptographic currencies. However, it remains unclear how long this search has continued.Hackers have begun to be careful about excavation stocks bypassing their most popular use. To complicate the tracking process, they set their own excavation software and link the script with unspecified backups.They even manage to use the processor to a minimum to keep it out of sight. Redlock has informed the prominent manufacturer of electric cars and his security team.A Tesla spokesman told VentureBeat that they offered a reward program to encourage such volunteer research and thus managed to address the problem in just a few hours of disclosure.Such incidents have also occurred in the past. In October last year, the same team from Redlock had managed to expose similar hacks in Aviva and Gemalta companies.According to the company's cloud service providers like Amazon, Microsoft and Google are doing their best, but such security breaches are not caused by their negligence.
