Maple Leaf Foods Pwned In Cyberattack

For those of you outside of Canada, Maple Leaf Foods is the biggest packaged meat producer in the company. If you go into any supermarket in the country, you will see their products. And over the weekend, they apparently got pwned in a cyberattack. Here’s their statement:

Upon learning of the incident, Maple Leaf Foods took immediate action and engaged cybersecurity and recovery experts.  Its team of information systems professionals and third-party experts are working diligently with all available resources to investigate the outage and resolve the situation.   The Company is executing its business continuity plans as it works to restore the impacted systems; however, it expects that full resolution of the outage will take time and result in some operational and service disruptions.  The Company will continue to work with all its customers and suppliers to minimize these disruptions in order to continue delivering the nutritious food people need.  

That’s literally all their statement said. I’ve been poking around the places that I usually look for this sort of thing and I don’t see any mention about Maple Leaf Foods being pwned. But it will be interesting to see whom claims responsibility for this, and if this affects the food supply in Canada.

Watch this space.
