Immer noch nicht alle Schäden behoben

Getroffen wurde unter anderem der Nahrungsmittelriese Mondelēz, weswegen seit Tagen keine Milka-Schokolade produziert werden kann, wie der Tagesspiegel berichtet. Für Beiersdorf (Nivea, Tesa, Eucerin) war der Angriff der folgenschwerste Hackerangriff überhaupt, berichtet der Stern. Weltweit sei in den 17 Fabriken des Unternehmens viereinhalb Tage lang nichts mehr gegangen. Massiv betroffen war offenbar auch die dänische Reederei Maersk, die mehr als eine Woche nach dem Angriff immer noch daran arbeitet, die Schäden vollständig zu beheben. (mho)
