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 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.  So don’t bother buying out your Rite Aid, and listing the bags on eBay for $100 a pop.
