Foodservice supplier Edward Don has suffered a ransomware attack that caused the company to stop portions of their network to prevent the virus’s spread. Edward Don and Company is one of the largest distributors of foodservice equipment and supplies, such as kitchen supplies, bar supplies, flatware, and dinnerware. The ransomware attack has caused some of their employees to use Gmail accounts to communicate with customers regarding orders or fulfillment issues. As Edward Don is one of the leading distributors of food service supplies, this attack will cause a significant disruption in the supply chain for hospitals, restaurants, hotels, and bars. At this time, it is not clear what ransomware operation has conducted the attack.
