Too Long; Didn't Read
Egor Igorevich Kriuchkov was allegedly trying to recruit his former colleague into implanting ransomware on his employer’s network via a USB drive or opening a malicious email. Once inside the network, his crew planned to take their victim for millions. For performing this one little favor for an old friend, he was going to offer his unnamed former colleague $500,000. This number eventually rose as high as a cool $1 million. The Tesla employee reported the plot to their boss and the FBI picked up Kriuckov trying to leave the country.
