Elon Musk he always takes his risks, without ever backing down, so it's no wonder if he boldly ignores the serious dangers that his Tesla have to face daily to let himself go to targeted shots against the WhatsApp security .
WhatsApp, exactly. Although no one has brought Musk into question, and although the case has in no way touched the world Tesla or the empire of its founder, Elon Musk he thought it well to participate with irony in the criticisms against Mark Zuckerberg on the security of his app for mobile communications. This is the tweet – which raised a lot of hilarity and reactions:
The reference is clearly to the – however burning – issue of the violation of the smartphone of Jeff Bezos , founder and CEO of Amazon. Although the case remains open, according to the first reconstructions, the problem would have been inherent in a video sent via WhatsApp to the same Bezos, which would have led to the installation of malware with the consequent theft of data from the entrepreneur's smartphone. Musk thus wanted to taunt the security of WhatsApp, also echoing the heavy words from Telegram on the same theme (the founder accuses WhatsApp of having deliberately foreseen known and dangerous backdoors inside).
All this happens on the same days when Musk himself announces a hackaton at home to collect the best hacking talents in search of answers and stress tests on the autopilot of Tesla cars. A gauntlet thrown in someone else's ring? Musk's message seems to be this: safety is not an option, safety must be standard.
