Meat giant JBS pays $11M in ransom to resolve cyber-attack

JBS, world’s largest meat company, paid a $11M ransom to hackers who shut down its processing facilities. The company paid the cybercriminals in Bitcoin, after last week’s attack temporarily disrupted plants that process half the US’ meat supply. ’It was very painful to pay the criminals, but we did the right thing for our customers,’ CEO Nogueira reportedly said.

Oh yes let's negotiate with terrorists again. Oh, don't worry, all someone has to do is phish for one email password and viola one quarter of a vital sector of our country is taken hostage. How strange. I'm guessing APMEX or Winchester or something similar will be targeted next, "Ammunition factories and silver mines across the country have been shut down" will read the headlines.

Beijing Biden's communist America. Stalin was a Priest then he read Marx and became a bank robber. He later went on to mass murder 100 million people. Obama's third administration is really going well if you look at it from a Marxist point of view.

I think this is propaganda to undermine the increasing awareness and use of crypto currencies. Fed loosing control and looking to creative ways to keep control of the money and the consumer dollars.

And they want to tax crypto as capital gains under revision of various cryptos being recognized ad assets. Yet the government can’t do squat to help you since they have no administrative capability and are just stretching their dominion over something they have zero ability or comprehension of. It sucks that people are scammed and screwed like this.
