Dole, one of the world’s largest producers of fruits and vegetables, has experienced a ransomware attack that temporarily shut down its production and disrupted its food sales. The attack occurred earlier this month, and the company released a brief official statement about the incident earlier this morning which included no further details. Anonymous sources, however, have confirmed that Dole’s IT systems were hit by a ransomware attack, which led to the temporary shutdown of some of its facilities. The attack reportedly impacted Dole’s ability to ship and receive products, resulting in supply chain disruptions. The company had to rely on manual processes to manage orders and inventory during the downtime, which caused delays and backlogs. It is not clear how much ransom the attackers demanded, and whether Dole paid the ransom.
