Cyber attacks have shut down JBS abattoirs across Australia, the United States, and Canada


May 31, 2021

Cyber attacks have shut down JBS abattoirs across Australia, the United States, and Canada, the Queensland meat industry union secretary has told ABC Radio Brisbane.

Phone and computer systems were down when workers arrived this morning.

Australian Meat Industry Employees’ Union Queensland Secretary Matt Journeaux said thousands of members would go without pay.

“The meat in the sandwich is that this is a concerted effort against Australian business and the workers will suffer as a result of that,” Mr Journeaux said.

“There’s six sites in Queensland that will be affected … and around the nation there would be significantly more.”

Federal Agriculture Minister David Littleproud confirmed the government was aware of the hack and was working to get JBS meatworks nationally back online.

More to come.
