Oh, No! The Largest Candy Corn Factory Has Been Hacked!

Halloween is just around the corner, and candy corn lovers everywhere SHOULD be experiencing PEAK JOY. But that joy is now under ATTACK!
A company in Chicago called Ferrara Candy makes Brach’s candy corn, which accounts for 85% of the country’s candy corn market.
And earlier this month, they were HACKED.
They were hit with a malicious ransomware attack, but no other specifics have been released.
The hack DID disrupt production and the company is still working to restore everything back to 100% . . . but it doesn’t sound like there will be any candy corn shortages.
(In other words, don’t bother buying out all the candy corn at your local CVS, and listing the bags on eBay for $100 a pop.)
