At this time, the Company cannot estimate how long it will take to resume fully normalized operations.The Clorox Company in a regulatory filing explaining how a cyberattack has caused “widescale disruption” to its operations.
Why It Matters: While we don’t know the full extent of the disruption of this cyberattack – Clorox has shared the disruption has impacted the company’s operations, specifically completing processing procedures and fulfilling orders. This could potentially impact popular products, like bleach and disinfecting wipes, getting to store shelves. The company first announced a cyberattack in mid-August but in a new filing this week, warned the attack may impact the company’s earnings and performance.
Clorox owns other brands that could be impacted, such as Burt’s Bees cosmetics and Glad trash bags.
Something to Consider: “Shoppers looking for the affected products should have an easier time finding them than the early days of COVID,” explained Axios.
