  • Elon Musk emails Tesla workers about 'extensive and damaging sabotage' by an employee

The person has changed the code of an internal application (Tesla Manufacturing Operating System) under false usernames and exported large amounts of sensitive data to outsiders.

In a shocking news, Tesla CEO, Elon Musk shared an email with all Tesla employees on Sunday claiming that there was a saboteur working among them who has been discovered. He referenced Wall Street short sellers "who have already lost billions of dollars", oil and gas companies that "don't love" to see solar power and electric cars advancing, and automakers that produce gasoline and diesel vehicles.

For now, Musk asks employees to, "Please be extremely vigilant, particularly over the next few weeks as we ramp up the production rate to 5k/week". Last week, Musk announced that he was reorganizing the company and shrinking Tesla's workforce by 9 percent in a bid for profitability.

A Tesla spokeswoman confirmed the authenticity of the Monday email, which CNBC reported first.

Tesla said the auto fire was an "extraordinarily unusual occurrence". Smoldering in an air filter in the welding area of Tesla's body line was extinguished in a matter of seconds, she said.

According to Elon Musk, not everyone working at Tesla has the company's best interests in mind. "There were no injuries or significant equipment damage, and production is back online".

Musk said the reorganization did not affect hourly assembly-line employees and was not expected to delay manufacturing targets.

Tesla has been going through a hard time lately, facing safety questions over its Autopilot system, layoffs, and production issues with its Model 3.

Musk sent a separate email addressed to everyone at his company yesterday.
