In Australia, 10,000 employees were forced to return home after IT system servers were infected. The case reminds us of similar attacks in recent weeks.
The US subsidiary of the world’s largest meat company, JBS, has been attacked by hackers. The company announced Monday (local time) that JBS USA was the target of an organized cyber attack that hit some servers in IT systems in North America and Australia. Unauthorized access was found on Sunday. In Australia, thousands of JBS workers had to be sent home.
The Brazilian company said all affected systems have been discontinued and authorities have been notified. Both internal and external IT experts are tasked with addressing the consequences of a hacker attack. This will take some time, which may delay some transactions with customers and suppliers.
Continued business interruption
The backup servers were reportedly not affected. JBS USA said the company has no information that data from customers, suppliers, or employees has been compromised or misused.
In Australia, operations were paralyzed by the pirate attack. There, 10,000 JBS employees were repatriated without compensation for their wages, union representative Matt Journeau told AFP. Management does not yet know when operations can be resumed.
