Candy corn production slowed by a hack? Just dip into the strategic reserves set aside in the late 80s. No one will ever know the difference.

Wiki: "The company claims that it produces 1 million pounds of gummy candy per week in four manufacturing plants, two in the U.S. and two in Mexico. The company employs approximately 6,000 people." So a small percentage of 6,000 workers would have terminals. A small domain/enterprise. Ransomware attack sounds so ominous. It sounds more like an employee opened an email they shouldn't have. But hey, Halloween news.

who knows, maybe their fab-machinery itself is stupidly-hackable? or maybe Carl from Shipping did something "clever" with his phone so he could be out drinking and bowling but still keep track of the line.

Hacking a candy corn factory sounds like something a Z-list comic book villain would do.
