JBS sign outside one of the company's Australian plantsThe world's largest meat processing company has been targeted by a sophisticated cyber-attack. Computer networks at JBS were hacked, causing some operations in Australia, Canada and the US to temporarily shut down, affecting thousands of workers. The company believes the ransomware attack originated from a criminal group likely based in Russia, the White House said. The attack could lead to shortages of meat or raise prices for consumers.
JBS confirms $4.4m ransom paid
JBS is the world's largest meat supplier with more than 150 plants in 15 countries
It was founded in Brazil in 1953 as a slaughtering business by rancher José Batista Sobrinho
The company now has more than 150,000 employees worldwide
Its customers include supermarkets and fast food outlet McDonald's
In the US, JBS processes nearly one quarter of the country's beef and one-fifth of its pork
JBS said it suspended all affected IT systems as soon as the attack was detected, and that its backup servers were not hacked. However many affected plants are still unable to operate.
I feel like this is an act of war if countries where the hacking is originating is not ended.
If this becomes the norm, because Biden is doing nothing about it, watch shortages to increase and prices to go absolutely crazy.
