Cheese supplier Albert Heijn victim of ransomware | Cooking & Eating

The company responsible for the deliveries of cheese to supermarket Albert Heijn was hacked during the Easter weekend. That says director Toon Verhoeven of Bakker Logistics. Due to the hack, there were empty shelves in the cheese departments in the Albert Heijn supermarkets last weekend.




Supplier Bakker Logistics from Zeewolde was attacked with so-called ransomware, a virus that threatens to publish or resell stolen data if no ransom is paid.

This happened on the night of Easter Monday to Monday. Verhoeven cannot answer the question whether a ransom has been paid. “We have reported it, so the case is now with the police.”

As a result of the hack, automation systems no longer worked and a switch had to be made to pen and paper. As a result, the cheese deliveries were stopped for a total of three days. The hack has now been resolved. Verhoeven: “We are currently working on all start-up protocols. We expect all problems in the supply chain to be resolved in the coming days. ”

Albert Heijn announces online that ‘due to a technical malfunction’ pre-packed cheese is still limited available.
