TESLA Data Brech – Information leaked by Insiders – 75,000 Customers Impacted
Tesla has admitted that it had a data breach in May 2023 that was caused by malicious insiders. Allegedly, two or more Tesla employees stole data including customer data from Tesla and leaked it. The German news outlet Handelsblatt obtained the data and published an analysis of it, which is how Tesla found out about the data breach. The treasure trove contained 100 gigabytes of confidential data, which included employees’ names and contact information such as addresses, cell phone numbers, and email addresses. The leaked data also included around 2,400 customer complaints about Tesla cars suddenly accelerating and a further 1,500 complaints of braking issues, including 383 cases of “phantom braking”.
How It Could Affect Your Business: No matter how loyal a company’s staff may seem, no company should ever discount the possibility of malicious insider activity.
