A ransomware attack against Brazilian meat-packing giant JBS has disrupted
production in the U.S., Canada and Australia.  JBS is the world's largest
meatpacker and the attack caused its Australian operations to shut down on
Monday and stopped livestock slaughter at its plants in several U.S. states
and the company's facility near Brooks, Alta.

The ransomware attack follows one last month on Colonial Pipeline, the
largest fuel pipeline in the U.S., which crippled fuel delivery for several
days in the southeastern part of the country.
