Cyber attack shuts down Australia’s biggest meat processor


A cyber attack has shut down Australia’s biggest meat and food processing company, raising concerns about supply to domestic and export markets.

It is understood the attack has affected JBS Foods’ operations across Australia as well as in the United States, Canada and other countries.

Cattle and lamb processing was cancelled at all JBS meatworks in Australia yesterday after the weekend attack on information systems at the company’s headquarters.

Farmers and food retailers remain in the dark about how long JBS will be out of action and, in addition to the supply chain disruption, thousands of meatworkers fear being left out of pocket.
