Top Russian meat producer hit with Windows BitLocker encryption attack

Russian-based meat producer and distributor Miratorg Agribusiness Holding confirmed that it was the target of a cyberattack. According to BleepingComputer, Russian federal veterinary and phytosanitary supervision service Rosselkhoznadzor explained that information systems of a number of Miratog’s subsidiaries were encrypted with BitLocker. According to Rosselkhoznadzor, the most likely point of compromise is VetIS, the state information system used by companies in the field of veterinary medicine, which suggests this was a supply chain attack. Miratog is working towards restoring the normal functioning of its business.
