Tesla sued his former employee, who is accused of illegally collecting and disseminating confidential commercial information.

In the lawsuit, according to their information, the name of the attacker is also mentioned – Martin Tripp. Before his dismissal, he worked as a technologist at Tesla.
It is alleged that the American was able to write a special computer program that could hack the Tesla operating system, and steal data. The company itself believes that with the help of this code, dozens of confidential photos and videos in technical information were transferred to third parties. As a result, Tesla suffered significant damage.
In addition, the man was accused of providing false information to the media. For example, not so long ago he claimed, then the electric cars Model 3 were used by faulty batteries. In Tesla they assure that this information is a lie.
In April, shares of American company Tesla collapsed by 5.1% during trading on the New York Stock Exchange. According to analysts, this led to a number of negative events that occurred to the automaker over the recent period.
