JBS Foods Suspended Meat Production Due to Cyberattack

JBS Foods, one of the leading meat producers in the world was targeted by an organized cyberattack. The incident which affected servers supporting its' North American and Australian network, caused interruptions on meat production. Analysts stated that the meatpackers slaughtered 22% fewer cattle and 20% fewer hogs from the week before. This event may lead to meat scarcity and soaring meat prices, which could greatly affect consumers.
