Elon Musk confirms Tesla Nevada factory was target of ‘serious’ cyberattack

Elon Musk confirmed Thursday that the Tesla Inc. gigafactory in Nevada was the target of a cyberattack that was foiled by the FBI.

Musk confirmed a news report identifying Tesla as the company targeted by Egor Igorevich Kriuchkov, who tried to pay an employee $1 million to install malware on the electric-car maker’s computer network, according to the feds.

“This was a serious attack,” Musk said on Twitter Thursday evening in response to the report from Teslarati, a Tesla-centric news site.

The site claimed Tesla was the unidentified firm mentioned in a 25-page criminal complaint federal prosecutors in Nevada brought against Kriuchkov, who was arrested Aug. 22 after trying to leave the US, authorities said.

The complaint says Kriuchkov rented a hotel room in Sparks, Nevada — home to the sprawling factory where Tesla makes batteries for its electric cars — while trying to carry out the scheme.

The US Justice Department had said that 27-year-old Kriuchkov was arrested on August 22 on the charge of conspiring to intentionally cause damage to a protected computer by attempting to recruit an employee to introduce malware into a system.

The statement had also revealed that the specific malware was intended to extract data from the network and then to threaten the company for ransom money. 

According to the Justice Department, Kriuchkov had promised the employee an incentive of $1 million upon introducing the malware into the system.

But the employee alerted the FBI, who were successful in thwarting the attack, a complaint filed by the FBI’s Las Vegas Field Office showed.

SpaceX and NASA plan to launch first full length astronaut mission in  October

SpaceX and NASA plan to launch first full length astronaut mission in October

SpaceX's next astronaut launch for NASA now targeted for Oct. 23

NASA targets October for next SpaceX Crew Dragon launch to space station

SpaceX’s next astronaut mission faces another launch delay.

The target launch date for SpaceX’s Crew-1 mission, its first fully operational crewed mission to space, has been pushed back from “no earlier than late September,” to “no earlier than Oct. 23, NASA announced in a statement today (Aug. 14). 

The mission, which is set to launch SpaceX’s Crew Dragon spacecraft atop a Falcon 9 rocket from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center, won’t lift off until at least late October “to accommodate spacecraft traffic for the upcoming Soyuz crew rotation and best meet the needs of the International Space Station,” NASA wrote in the statement. 

Crew-1 will carry astronauts Shannon Walker, Victor Glover, Mike Hopkins and Soichi Noguchi to the International Space Station, and will mark the first regular service mission of the Dragon spacecraft following its certification at the conclusion of its development and testing program.

Crew Dragon’s final major milestone in that process was Demo-2, the mission launched on May 30 with astronauts Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley on board.

While Hurley and Behnken completed that mission with a successful return to Earth earlier this month, that was still technically part of the qualification process for Crew Dragon and for SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket, in order to certify it for human spaceflight so that it could begin regular mission operations — which kick off with Crew-1.

Building on a successful unpiloted test flight last year, the Demo 2 mission, carrying astronauts Douglas Hurley and Robert Behnken, went off without a hitch, launching on May 30 and docking at the space station the next day. After a two-month stay, the astronauts returned to Earth with splashdown in the Gulf of Mexico on August 2.

NASA managers initially targeted late September for the Crew 1 launch, but decided to move it after the Oct. 14 launch of two cosmonauts and a NASA astronaut aboard the Soyuz MS-17/63S spacecraft.

Commercial spaceflight milestones like the successful completion of Demo-2 and with Crew-1 will enable NASA “to regularly fly astronauts to the space station, ending sole reliance on Russia for space station access,” the agency stated today. 

Russia Announces First Covid-19 Vaccine,Putin’s daughter get vaccinated

Russia Announces First Covid-19 Vaccine,Putin’s daughter get vaccinated

Russia has developed COVID-19 vaccine, claims Putin, says his daughter received dose

Putin Says Russia Has Registered World’s First Covid-19 Vaccine

Russian President Vladimir Putin says that a coronavirus vaccine developed in the country has been registered for use and one of his daughters has already been inoculated.

Speaking at a government meeting on Tuesday, Putin said that the vaccine has proven efficient during tests, offering a lasting immunity from the coronavirus.

“As far as I know, this morning the first vaccine against the novel conoravirus infection in the world was registered,” Putin said Tuesday at a televised government meeting.

Putin emphasised that the vaccine underwent the necessary tests. He added that one of his two daughters has received a shot of the vaccine and is feeling well.

“She has taken part in the experiment,” Putin said, adding that she had a temperature of 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit on the day of the first shot, and then it dropped to just over 98.6 degree the following day.

After the second dose, she again had a slight increase in temperature, but then it was all over.

The announcement represents a propaganda coup for the Kremlin amid a global race to develop vaccines against the coronavirus pandemic that has killed nearly 750,000 people, infected more than 20 million and crippled national economies.

Companies including AstraZeneca Plc and Moderna Inc. are still conducting final-stage trials of their vaccines in studies that are expected to soon yield results. Some pharmaceutical companies have called Russia’s rushed registration dangerous.

Russian authorities have said that medical workers, teachers and other risk groups will be the first to be inoculated.

Russia is the first country to register a coronavirus vaccine. Many scientists in the country and abroad have been skeptical, however, questioning the decision to register the vaccine before Phase 3 trials that normally last for months and involve thousands of people.

Critics say the country’s push for a vaccine is partly due to political pressure from the Kremlin, which is keen to portray Russia as a global scientific force.

Russia has released no scientific data on its testing and CNN is unable to verify the vaccine’s claimed safety or effectiveness.

Despite this, Russian officials have told CNN that at least 20 countries and some US companies have expressed interest in the vaccine.

9 people tested positive for COVID-19 at a Georgia high school

9 people tested positive for COVID-19 at a Georgia high school

Days after photos of packed hallways go viral, Paulding high school reports 9 COVID-19 cases

Earlier this week, a sophomore student alleged that she was suspended from the school for sharing a viral photograph of the packed hallway of the school.

Just days after a photo of crowded hallways at North Paulding High School went viral, parents were informed Saturday of nine confirmed cases of the coronavirus at the school.

Six students and three staff members who were at the school last week have tested positive, according to a letter sent to parents Saturday that was acquired by ABC News. The positive cases were reported to the school after private tests.

“We have anticipated that COVID-19 would impact us as it has nearly every community, and the district has worked in partnership with the Department of Public Health (DPH) to proactively implement safety precautions and response plans,” the letter reads. It does not say whether anyone will be quarantined or if the school will close fully or in part, but says custodial staff will continue daily disinfecting procedures.

Schools in the USA have reopened for the new academic sessions even as the threat of the pandemic looms large and cases continue to spike.

While many have responded to the resurgence of cases with completely remote schooling, others have opted to return to the classroom — which the nation’s top infectious disease expert, Dr. Anthony Fauci, has said works if safety measures are the priority.

North Paulding got national attention last week after a student took a photo of jam-packed hallways with few students wearing masks. School officials initially suspended the student who took the photo, Hannah Waters, but then lifted the punishment after it sparked outrage.

“Going in [to school] I was nervous, but trusting that Paulding would keep us safe,” Hannah told ABC News earlier this week. “But it was worse than I thought it was going to be. I didn’t feel safe, especially coming home to family after going to school.”

The school wrote in a letter following the release of the photos, “Under the COVID-19 protocols we have adopted, class changes that look like this may happen, especially at a high school with more than 2,000 students.”
