Carolina Panthers QB Sam Darnold says he hasn’t been vaccinated for COVID-19 yet

New Carolina Panthers quarterback Sam Darnold fielded some questions following OTAs on Wednesday afternoon. Among them included an inquiry on his stance regarding the COVID-19 vaccine, in which replied with a dose of uncertainty about the treatment.

“I haven’t been vaccinated yet,” Darnold said. “Still gotta think about all those certain things that go into it. Again, it’s everyone’s choice, whether they wanna get vaccinated or not. So, that’s really all I got on it. I don’t wanna go too into detail.”

He was then asked if he’d done research on the vaccination and how that may ultimately factor into his decision.

“Yeah, I have been. For me, I’m just staying by myself right now. I don’t have a family or anything like that," Darnold said. "Again, there’s a ton of different things that go into it. I’m gonna evaluate that on my own and make the best decision that I feel is, again, the best for myself.”

Cybersecurity expert: Ransomware criminals are in it for the money

(CNN Business)The meat supplier JBS USA paid an $11 million ransom in response to a cyberattack that led to the shutdown of its entire US beef processing operation last week, the company said in a statement Wednesday evening.

The ransom was paid after most of the company’s facilities had come back online, JBS said.
“This was a very difficult decision to make for our company and for me personally,” said Andre Nogueira, CEO of JBS USA, in the statement. “However, we felt this decision had to be made to prevent any potential risk for our customers.”

    JBS’s payment was first reported by The Wall Street Journal.

      The cyberattack affected servers supporting JBS’s IT systems in North America and Australia. The US government has attributed the ransomware attack to REvil, a criminal gang believed to be based in Russia or Eastern Europe.

        “Preliminary investigation results confirm that no company, customer or employee data was compromised,” JBS said in Wednesday’s statement.
        JBS USA is part of JBS Foods, which it says is one of the world’s largest food companies. It has operations in 15 countries and has customers in about 100 countries, according to its website. Its brands include Pilgrim’s, Great Southern and Aberdeen Black.
