All JBS facilities up and running after ransomware attack

JBS USA and Pilgrim’s on Thursday afternoon announced that all global facilities were functioning normally, days after JBS was hit by a ransomware attack believed to have been carried out by Russian-based hackers.

JBS, the largest beef provider in the U.S., saw facilities in both North America and Australia impacted by the ransomware attack that hit the company over the weekend and forced the shutdown of all U.S. facilities on Tuesday.

The two companies noted Thursday that all lost production from the shutdown would be made up by the end of this week, and that the amount lost was less than one day’s typical production.
