In the Chulymsky district of the Novosibirsk region, employees of RES JSC discovered an illegal connection to the power grid for the extraction of cryptocurrencies.
The attackers organized a mining farm on the territory of one of the woodworking enterprises in the booth of an old truck. The car could move and connect to transformer substations.
According to the estimates of power engineers, the amount of damage amounted to about 1 million rubles.
The company contacted the police. The organizer of the mining farm faces up to five years in prison.
Earlier in Dagestan, 254 cryptocurrency mining devices illegally connected to the power grid were seized.
