    Cyber ​​attack on JBS: $ 11 million ransom paid to hackers


03 July 2021

First, a new cyber attack with a ransom demand in the US by Russian hackers, after the summit between Joe Biden and Vladimir Putin, who had also agreed to collaborate to prevent and crack down on hackers.

According to the American media, the hit was the REvil group, which had already obtained a millionaire ransom for the cyber sabotage of the US branch of JBS, the largest meat seller in the world.

This time the American company Kaseya, which supplies software to large companies and technology service providers, is being targeted. Kaseya reported that less than 40 of its 36,000 customers were affected by the attack, including service providers, who in turn have numerous customers. Hacking could therefore involve hundreds of companies.
