According to the details, a criminal complaint was reported that accused a Russian man of offering $1 million to the employee of a Nevada company, identified only as “Company A,” in exchange for the employee infecting the company’s network.
The employee reported the offer to Tesla and later worked with the FBI in a sting that involved him covertly recording face-to-face meetings discussing the proposal.

“The purpose of the conspiracy was to recruit an employee of a company to surreptitiously transmit malware provided by the co-conspirators into the company’s computer system, ex-filtrate data from the company’s network, and threaten to disclose the data online unless the company paid the co-conspirators’ ransom demand,” prosecutors wrote in the complaint.
