Global meat supply hack

A cyberattack on JBS, the largest meat producer in the world, forced the shutdown of American slaughterhouses, and the closures may be spreading. JBS’s five biggest beef plants in the U.S. halted processing following the weekend attack, equal to one-fifth of all of America’s meat production. Slaughter operations across Australia were also down and one of Canada’s largest beef plants was idled. The prospect of more extensive shutdowns is upending agricultural markets and raising concern about food security as hackers increasingly target critical infrastructure. Livestock futures slumped while pork prices rose. JBS told the White House that the cyberattack, like several previous ransomware assaults, probably originated in RussiaDavid E. Rovella

Here are today’s top stories  

An investment firm sold all of its stock in AMC Entertainment Holdings just as the theater chain was disclosing that the firm, Mudrick Capital, just bought $230.5 million of its shares. Mudrick disposed of its AMC stake at a profit after concluding the stock was overvalued, propped up by a recent wave of day-trader enthusiasm. Here’s your markets wrap.

China’s Sinovac Biotech received World Health Organization authorization of its Covid-19 vaccine, paving the way for a wider rollout of the controversial shot in countries scrambling for immunizations. Peru more than doubled its coronavirus death toll to 180,000 while a new, “very dangerous” mutation has emerged in Vietnam. As for organ transplant patients, multiple vaccine doses are needed to fend off the pathogen. Here’s the latest on the pandemic.

The Reserve Bank of India’s decision to lift a rule barring banks from facilitating cryptocurrency trades may mollify traditional lenders who had been reluctant to help settle those deals.

Amazon has stopped requiring customers to pursue claims in arbitration after tens of thousands of people inundated the company with complaints that Alexa was improperly collecting voice recordings. Now they can sue.

Contrary to dire predictions at the time, the overhaul of the U.S. tax code pushed through by Republicans in 2017 that included a cap on state and local tax deductions had a less than dramatic impact on where Americans moved.

Tech’s golden child is no more—at least as far as regulators, Congress and the courts are concerned, reports Bloomberg Businessweek. Pressured over its App Store and its handling of customer data, Apple can no longer sidestep the criticism directed at peers like Amazon and Facebook.
