September 17, 2021: IA Ag Cooperative Hit In Ransomware Attack

An Iowa agricultural business, New Cooperative, suffered a ransomware attack and the criminal gang is demanding a $5.9 million ransom. And while the victim and the attacker quibble over if the organization is considered critical infrastructure or not, a vital system is shut down.
New Cooperative confirmed it had been hit with a cyberattack either late Friday or early Saturday and shut down its systems in response. Researchers are saying the cyber gang called BlackMatter, which has Russian ties, perpetrated the assault.
New Cooperative contained the breach and developed a workaround to continue accepting grain shipments and distributing feed.
The cooperative took its computer network offline to isolate the incursion and stopped its soil-mapping software — a master-control system that optimizes irrigation and fertilization — as a precaution.
