Agropur Confirms Data Breach Exposing Customer Information

Сanadian dairy giant Agropur has confirmed a significant data breach, exposing customer information. While details of the incident remain sparse, a report from BleepingComputer revealed that the breach was confined to part of Agropur’s shared online directory, leaving its transactional systems unaffected.

In a statement, Agropur emphasized that the continuity of its operations was not disrupted by the breach. “After detecting the issue, we immediately launched an investigation and took steps to address the incident, including the implementation of corrective measures to mitigate the impact. To avoid prejudicing the investigation, we will not make further comment at this time,” the company stated.

Key information regarding the breach remains unknown, including the identity of the attackers, the method of the attack, and the specific type of data accessed. It is also unclear whether the data was stolen, if an infostealer was employed, or if the attackers are demanding a ransom.

Should the investigation reveal significant data loss, Agropur may be required to file an 8-K report with the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), which could provide more concrete details about the breach. Hackers often exaggerate the data they steal to pressure victims into paying or to bolster their reputation within the cybercriminal community.

Founded in 1938, Agropur is one of North America’s largest dairy processors, producing a wide range of dairy products, including cheese, yogurt, butter, and milk powders. The cooperative is owned by over 3,000 dairy farmers and operates numerous processing facilities across Canada and the United States. Agropur employs more than 7,000 people and is renowned for its diverse dairy product lineup.

As the investigation unfolds, stakeholders and customers await further updates on the breach and its potential implications.
