INCIDENT: UK Snack Provider Hit by Ransomware Attack

A British snack food provider, Kenyon Produce (KP) Snacks, suffered an attack by the Conti ransomware group, which had an effect on distribution to supermarkets, and could now be in negotiations for the decryption key.
The German-owned company said it became aware of the attack on January 28, and it immediately took steps to contain the attack. A letter from KP Snacks sent to store owners February 2 said it its systems had been “compromised by ransomware” and it “cannot safely process orders or dispatch goods.”
