    ASCO, one of the world's largest suppliers of airplane parts, has ceased production in factories across four countries due to a ransomware infection reported at its plant in Zaventem, Belgium.

    As a result of having IT systems crippled by the ransomware infection, the company has sent home approximately 1,000 of its 1,400 workers.

    ASCO planned for an initial downtime from Monday to Wednesday, but Belgium media reported [1, 2, 3, 4, 5] that the impromptu leave has been extended for the entire week, including the upcoming weekend.
