A flock of chickens, held for #ransom — Growing #cyberattacks on #Canada's #food system threaten #disaster

Farms are now complex technical operations that use networks of remote monitors that measure soil moisture, or robotic milkers that can detect an infection in a single teat, or environmental control systems that maintain the precise indoor temperature and air filtration needs of a poultry barn. All that, theoretically, could be commandeered and held for ransom in a #cyberattack. For example, a hacker could gain control of a thermostat and threaten to turn up the heat and kill an entire flock of chickens.

According to a report, $140 million worth of assets were successfully recovered following a counter-exploit. The retrieval was initiated via the Oasis Multisig, and the funds were returned to a court-authorized third party. The counter exploit was only possible with the approval of the Oasis Multisig.
