The White House said it was informed by Brazil’s JBS SA that the disruption in meat production in North America and Australia was likely caused by a ransomware attack by an organization from Russia. On Tuesday, JSB said it had made quite some progress in resolving the cyberattack while the White House has directly addressed the issue to the Russian govt. The cyberattack caused prices to jump by $1 and reduced the rate of slaughtering by 18% compared to 2020.
