The US agricultural machinery company AGCO has been the victim of an attack. The group also includes the Fendt subsidiary in the Allgäu region. Thousands of employees are affected by the outage.

At the tractor manufacturer Fendt, the assembly lines are currently at a standstill in Marktoberdorf and other factories in Germany. The majority of the 4000 employees of the manufacturer in the Bavarian town can not work, reported the Allgäuer Zeitung on Monday. Production and assembly at the industrial plant are affected, it said. There are neither parts out nor in, also the administration is partially paralyzed. The cause is a hacker attack on the U.S. parent company AGCO, which was discovered on Thursday and has an impact on production facilities worldwide.

Ransomware is not an attack. It’s the failure of the management to hire highly qualified IT experts, get out of their way, and let them do their job.
