Former Tesla employee admits uploading Autopilot source code to his iCloud

Honestly, we are to the point that if I was the hiring person at any kind of tech company, or a company with serious trade secrets, I'd have a hard time hiring anyone that was Chinese.  Especially if their family was not Chinese American. If they are first gen in this country, they should be HIGHLY suspect:
"Guangzhi Cao, a former engineer at Tesla, admitted in a court filing this week that he uploaded zip files containing Autopilot source code to his personal iCloud account in late 2018 while still working for the company. Tesla sued Cao earlier this year for allegedly stealing trade secrets related to Autopilot and bringing them to Chinese EV startup Xiaopeng Motors, also known as Xmotors or XPeng, which is backed by tech giant Alibaba.
Cao denied stealing sensitive information from the automaker in the same filing. His legal team argued he "made extensive efforts to delete and/or remove any such Tesla files prior to his separation from Tesla." Cao is now the "head of perception" at XPeng, where he is "[d]eveloping and delivering autonomous driving technologies for production cars," according to his LinkedIn profile."
