Biden says he is 'looking closely' at retaliation over Russian-linked cyberattack

WASHINGTON — President Joe Biden said Wednesday that he was examining whether the U.S. would retaliate for a cyberattack linked to Russian-based hackers targeting the country’s largest meat producer.

“We’re looking closely at that issue,” Biden said when asked if he could retaliate against Russia.

When asked if he believed Russian President Vladimir Putin was testing him, Biden said no.

JBS, one of the world's largest international meat processors, was hacked Sunday, the company said in a statement, forcing it to take systems offline and stop work, which is now raising concerns about future shortages or supply disruptions.

2. JBS is based in Brazil and is one of the 4 largest

meat processors in NA. Putin's buddy in Brazil would make this just a shock to this to the supply to foster increased prices of food. The systems in the US seem to be the only ones hacked. It was not a test it was an attack.
