Tesla Motors recently announced its biggest recall to date, with close to 135,000 vehicles in the US and Canada being affected. The recall, which covers Model S and Model X vehicles manufactured before April 2016, is due to issues with the power-steering system and has the potential to cause permanent metal fatigue in the cars. While Tesla’s recall is undoubtedly a setback, it is also an example of the company’s commitment to safety. The US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) praised Tesla’s proactive attitude, noting that the company has already been working on patching up the problem before the recall was issued. In a related incident, crypto-wallet provider Ledger suffered a cyber attack and lost roughly $1.5 million to hackers. Ledger, which provides hardware wallets for storing digital currencies such as Bitcoin, fell victim to a cyberattack on its e-commerce store. The attack resulted in customers having their payment information stolen and Ledger forced to notify buyers of the breach. Thankfully, no customer funds were lost due to the cyber attack. Ledger has taken strict measures to prevent similar incidents from occurring again, stating that they now have greater security measures in place and advising users to upgrade their Ledger wallets. These two separate events demonstrate the importance of staying up to date on recalls and staying vigilant about cybersecurity. The Tesla recall shows the potential for issues with technology and the importance of having a system in place for timely repairs. Meanwhile, the Ledger incident highlights the potential for malicious attacks and the need to employ best practices when it comes to data security. While there has been disruption and inconvenience for those affected, Tesla and Ledger’s responsiveness in addressing issues shows that they are taking the necessary steps to solve problems and ensure customer safety.
