The world’s number one meat company was forced to pay $ 11 million to a group of hackers who had carried out a cyber attack with ransomware and blocked JBS systems.
Last week computer networks were hit by blocking operations in Australia, the US and Canada. Reported payment is made in Bitcoin.
JBS said there was no other way. In a ransomware attack, hackers threaten the company with blocking data if they do not pay a certain amount.
The attack on JBS threatened the company’s production and supply chain and even raised prices for consumers. The White House believes groups of hackers from Russia were behind the attack.
A few days ago a gas processing company in the US paid $ 4.4 million even though the authorities managed to recover 2.2 million of them. / PCWorld Albanian
