Canadian packaged meats giant suffers disruptions after cyberattack

Canadian meat packaging giant Maple Leaf Foods suffered a cyberattack on Sunday, prompting multiple system outages and disrupting operations at multiple facilities.

In a short press release, Maple Leaf Foods said it became aware of the issue over the weekend and immediately began working with cybersecurity and third-party specialists to investigate the outage.

Maple Leaf said it expects ongoing service and operational disruptions as it works to resolve the outage, and said it has no ETA for restoration.

“Upon learning of the incident, Maple Leaf Foods took immediate action and engaged cybersecurity and recovery experts,” the company said. “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,” Maple Leaf Foods added.

“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.”

For the moment, the iconic Canadian firm has not provided any additional details regarding the number of impacted systems or sites.

No threat group has claimed responsibility, and according to investigators at Bleeping Computer, there have been no announcements on cybercrime forums listing Maple Leaf Foods among new victims.
