Hacker News: Hackers are targeting Tesla Model S, Model X, Chevy Volt in US

Jun 10, 2021 Article

Hacker News is hosting an article about the latest Tesla Model 3 hack that has caused several Tesla Model X and Chevy Volt owners to have their electric vehicles taken out of service.

The hack is the second to affect Tesla owners in just a week.

Last week, Tesla reported that a “hack” occurred at its Fremont, California, assembly plant.

The company says the hackers broke into the company’s network and stole data on hundreds of thousands of Tesla owners.

The stolen data included the names, addresses, and phone numbers of more than 150,000 Model S owners, the company said.

Tesla is taking the hack seriously, but it has not yet released any information about what happened.

The hackers are claiming responsibility for the breach.

“We have identified several vulnerabilities in our systems that allow remote code execution,” the company wrote in a blog post.

“Tesla has notified affected owners of the vulnerabilities.

Tesla will provide updates as soon as we can.”

Tesla has been working on a fix for the hacking issue, but the company is still working on an update to its firmware.

“The company is aware of several reported vulnerabilities in the Tesla software that could lead to a remote code-execution vulnerability,” the Tesla statement said.

“While this is an ongoing issue, Tesla has not publicly disclosed any vulnerabilities.

If the Tesla firmware is affected, we will update it as soon it is available.”

Tesla said that it is aware the hackers targeted its software but declined to release the names of the affected customers.

The automaker also did not disclose the number of affected customers, or the date of the hack.

Tesla said it has patched the security holes in the software and the automaker is working to roll out the update as soon the security hole is patched.

The hacks have been spreading like wildfire on social media.

A Tesla forum member posted that he has received emails from a man claiming to be a Tesla employee, saying, “Hey, I hacked Tesla and my car is on fire.”

The person went on to say that he had already been “hacked twice.”

“You guys should know I’m still alive,” the person said in a video posted by Hacker News.

“I’m still driving my car.

You should all know that.”

The forum member said that he used the stolen information to buy a car for $3,500 and that he sold the car after getting a refund.

“If you have information about this hacker, please let us know,” the forum member wrote.

“And please stop spreading lies.”

Tesla did not immediately respond to a request for comment from NBC News.
