JBS has reportedly paid 11million USD to the ransomware hackers


JBS has reportedly paid 11million USD to the ransomware hackers who breached its computer networks in may 2021. JBS USA Holdings, Inc. is an American food processing company and a wholly owned subsidiary of JBS S.A., a Brazilian company that is the world's largest processor of fresh beef and pork, with more than US$50 billion in annual sales as of 2017. The breach which was done by REvil is one of a number of Russian-speaking hacker gangs, which led meat plants across the United states and Australia to shutdown for at least 24hrs but eventually JBS was successful in recovering their systems to run as before the attack without the support of the hackers. REvil on its part is known to hack big organizations in exchange for some fees to provide decrypt programs and file preservation from the public, the main reason why JBS paid the said amount. #JBS #Ransomware
