Cyber attack on JBS shuts down meatworks across the world
Multinational meat processor JBS has been forced to shut down its Queensland abattoirs following a major cyber attack.
The company has processing facilities in Townsville, Dinmore, and Rockhampton and across the country employs 11,000 people.
Agriculture Minster David Littleproud told Scott Emerson said it was too early to speculate who was responsible for the attack.
“Very concerning and obviously it has put a significant disruption into the supply chain.
“As you’ve said it’s further than their Australian operations it’s a global attack and we are working with international partners around to trace and rectify and prosecute where possible who has perpetrated this attack.”
