"the news with shepherd smith. this week they threatened our food supply attacking the largest meet supplier in the
world. jbs. we can say that the largest meat packing plant is back online the fall out is deep we'll hear from a cattle rancher caught in a cross fire says this could be a breaking point for hibusiness cyber attacks have been relentless and a threat to our economy and lives. a water supply in florida by dumping in chemicals molson coors was hit with a ransom attack as well. and gas shortages last month as the colonial pipeline was a attacked and san diego hospitals hit. we begin tonight with the crisis at hand and senior washington correspondent ean javers we are learning more about the
ransomware gang that attacked one of the biggest meat suppliers anywhere >> they're known as r evil, the group that attacked a company affiliatedith apple in april they're a russian-speaking gang prably operating out of a former soviet sa they are just one of a number of high profile russian-linked gangs targeting western companies. the white house doesn't believe vladimir putin is behind it, but he has the power to intervene. i spoke to one of the companies about what has to happen now >> we are tired of hackers hacking our hospitals and infrastructure and doing their ransomware acts.
we know he where the actors are >> reporter: president biden not committing to any specific action but fielding question from reporters about what he's going to do. >> mr. president, will you retaliate against russia for the latest ransomware attack >> we're looking closely into it >> do you think putin is testing you? >> no. >> what can washington do about all of this? this there's a number of ideas that are under consideration here in town more sanctions to cut russia off from the global economy, new rules on cryptocurrency, or just flat out making it illegal for american companies to pay off the criminal gangs the problem is all those ideas have their critics too it's not clear how congress and the white house will be able to stop this. shep >> eamon, thank you. it's not just a meat giant
conglomerate feeling the pain. cattle ranchers are taking major hit from this ransomware attack. we are near a ranch near sacramento here is jacob ward >> reporter: ransomware in california is having an immediate effect ranchers say a delay of a couple of days in the meat-processing industry could reverberate all the way from grocery store shelves back to the pasture. >> there's four companies that control 80% of the market. 50 years ago there used to be a butcher shop on every corner now you're hard pressed to find one anywhere in town we have a very fragile system and these kind of events bring that to the forefront and show people how critical to have a safe food supply >> reporter: ranching is, of course, an ancient way of life, but in the modern era, it's been
digitized. each one of these cows is given a tag on its ear that gives them a unique identifier which helps build a system that allows everything from a usda food safety tracking system to the ability to forecast markets to the ability for you and i to know what fresh meat and what is not all of that is under threat in this new era of ransomware shep >> jake, hackers are attacking the way new englanders get to the beach. just today we learned a ransomware gang launched a cyber attack against the ferry service to cape cod nantucket and martha's vineyard. the steam ship warned customers theyight experience delays and would not be able to make reservations online or by phone. this recent string of hack attacks took a more sinister turn last month when a russian-based group took over america's largest pipeline in a recent article, "the new york times" dug into the inner working of dark side that's the group behind the hack during interviews with hackers
themselves, the times found the groups went well beyond just hacking business, they opened doors for less sophisticated hackers. earlier i spoke wi andrew cramer the moscow you correspondent for the times. andrew, thank you. your article details the inner working of dark side, the ransom ware gang. that shut down the pipeline, what is did i have about their operation than past hacking groups >> well, the most distinguishing characteristic of dark side is its business model and mode of operation. it's highly organized and highly compartmentalized. it operates something like a franchise. you can get the software and you can use it as well as use the dark side's reputation as it were to extract money from their targets mostly in the united states >> you don't have to come up with the ideas yourself in the way that mcdonald's give you
marketing and access to their product and the research this ransomware is furnished to you. >> that's right. it's a business model like a franchise. a hacker would have to gain access to a system or server but then would use the ready-made software from dark side and other such services that an individual hacker might not have access to. >> it's interesting because one of the quotes in your article stood out. cyber criminal nows can be a i guess that's self-explanatory. >> that's right. it used to be an activity that required a high degree of computer skills but if you become an affiliate of some of the other businesses that operate ransomware as a service, you don't need all the skills. you do one small part and the rest of can be bought off the shelves. >> that sounds like we're not going to see less of this. we're going to see even more
would your reporting bear that out? >> i think it's been a growing business in russia and other former soviet countries. there's no reason for them to stop as long as long as they are making these very significant profits. >> andrew cramer from the "new york times", now, here's the big unknown, how many ransomware attacks are there in a week. some businesses never go public. how much money hackers have stolen, we may never know. he drove into downtown nashville on christmas morning and blew himself up in an rv and created widespread destruction new questions emerge about the bomber and what police did and did not do before the attack a 12-year-old and a 14-year-old broke into a home, unseveral guns and that's when their showdown withops began. it's trading frenzy that triggered a trading freeze

scott cohn >> reporter: on what should have been the most peaceful morning of a most unpeaceful year. christmas in nashville was one more confirmation of a world coming apart at the seams. >> this could have been the greatest mass murder in the history of tennessee >> reporter: only the suspected bomber, 63-year-old anthony quinn warner died. they're still cleaning up the damage and the trauma. what if authorities had been warned that the i.t. specialist had been building bombs in his rv it turned out they had been by a friend of warner's pamela perry that came out soon after the bombing. a new report by a special commission details the signals investigators missed >> we have the benefit of hindsight and obviously those police officers did not. >> reporter: the eight page report, the product of a five month investigation says perry was distraught, suicidal when
she called 911 on august 21st, 2019 warner was ruining her life. she said, and she needed to save the innocent from him. officersaid perry rambled, was paranoid, she agreed to be day taken in for a mental health scan and investigators did try to follow-up including going to warner's house, but they never made contact with him and the matter stayed unresolved until christmas morning more than a year later, pamela perry knew right away who did it, she called authoritiesgain >> there's no way we can no this bombing could have been prevented. >> reporter: the so-called after actioneport by the special commission investigating the police response does make a number of recommendations, including bett follow up on open cases and documentation officers said they made multiple attempts to contact anthony warner, the suspected bomber but there's no record of it. shep

in this state in its history than me. what cdc has done by closing the cruise industry for over a year, they do not have the authority to do it >> the governor has sued the cdc. challenge its vaccine requirements so far no ruling from the court. nbc shaquille brewster covering the story. from the port of miami >> reporter: well, shep there's a lot at stake here, the port for the past 15 months it's been pretty quiet here as the cruise ships which were home to some of first super spreader events here in the united states were grounded based on cdc regulation now there are some light at the end of the tunnel but you have the cruise operator saying it's vaccinations that's the key to help them sail again as soon as the end of this month. there's some data to support that there's a new survey saying 80% of cruise goers want passengers to be vaccinated
i spoke to a cruise analyst about the urgency. the urgency to settle the dispute with the state of florida and to get passengers back on the ships, listen to what he told me. >> they really need these first cruises to be absolutely perfect. no break outs of covid customer service has to be pre-pandemic levels and if something goes wrong, there's another break out, that's really going to set them back. >> reporter: there's reports the governor's office is working with cruise officials to find a work around. perhaps saying when cruise ships are at sea they're in international waters which would allow them to require the proof of vaccinations. the governor's office denies that and says he's going to enforce florida law. there's a lot of uncertainty here in miami. >> shaq, thank you a summer of freedom. that's what president biden promised americans today as he
declared june a national month of action. the president pushing to get more people vaccinated in hopes of getting the country back to normal >> america's headed into the summer dramatically different from last year's summer. the summer of freedom. the summer of joy. the summer of get together and celebrations all american summer that this country deserves after long, long dark winter that we all endured. we need every one across the country to pull together, to get us over the finish line. >> the president also laid out a campaign to meet his goal of getting 70% of u.s. adults, at least partially vaccinated by july 4th it plans to recruit black own barber and salons to provide shots at the shop. another initiative includes free child care for parent who is want to get vaccinated the administration created a site where americans can learn about incentives like free beer,

faculties left >> reporter: she recommended he look for a clinical trial and he found one for a drug >> we all firmly believe that this medication has done exactly what it is supposed to do which is to slow the progression of the disease. >> reporter: now that drug is before the fda for a decision that could be historic if approved, it would be first new medicine for alzheimer's disease in 18 years and the only medicine approved that slows its progress >> it's enormously impactful to think we could say there's an approved drug we would prescribe and give to you that might slow down the process. >> reporter: the agency's decision is anything but straight-forward in march 2019, biogen, theid company said it was aducanumab and said it was discontinuing
the program after two phase three clinical trials appear to show the drug didn't work. seven months later, an about face new data suggesting it might and encouragement from the fda to file approval. the rocky path goes beyond this drug it's latest in a long line that have targeted the plaque build ups in the brain to try to slow the declines in memory and thinking clearly that come with alzheimer's. up until now, all have failed. advise tor with the mixed trial data, outside advisors to the fda were unconvinced for aducanumab unconvinced in a meeting in novemberyeses, 10,0 noes and one uncertain. >> reporter: it's a moment of intense hope the fda is said to issue. its >> we have zero yeses, 10 no's and one uncertain. >> reporter: it's a moment of intense hope the fda is said to issue its decision by monday, june 7th if approved, the drug would likely only be for people early in course of their disease doctors tell us it would be a tremendously important start for patients there's much more to do.
shep >> thank you very much meg tirill the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu is on the verge of being ousted from office a coalition of his political opponents agreed today to form a new government without him the coalition is wide ranging including parties from the left and far right. even one that represents palestinian citizens of israel the move will mark an end to netanyahu's 12 years in power, the longest in israel histoend s power. 12 years >> reporte from tel aviv, here is kelly cobiella >> reporter: this is a crushing blow to israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu, but it's not quite every yet. this coalition government still needs to be approved by the lac next 12 days knesset, the monday israeli parliament. parliaments a vote has to take place in the
next 12 days by law. that's by the 14th of june, a monday if the parliament does approve this coalition government, neftali bennett will be sworn in as the new prime minister. he's a former ally of benjamin netanyahu. he served as his defense minister, his chief of staff he's considered very far right he has a lot of support among the religious right. he's a former leader of a settlement movement and doesn't believe in a two state solution. what does it mean for the future of big issues here in the middle east and in israel? well, these parties basically don't agree on any of those big issues some things like middle east peace and a long-term peace plan will probably be on hold for a long time. the coalition more likely to focus on domestic issues like the economy and the coronavirus. in a statement, the head of the coalition saying the new government will do everything it can to unite every part of israeli society. shep >> kelly, thanks
it's been big year for mars, but now another planet is orbiting into the headlines. two missions on the books to explore the second rock from the sun. and a monumental change is coming to college basketball coach k is hanging it up but not before giving the game one last gift we'll talk to a legend in his own right. jim boeheim live on coach k's good-bye the epson ecotank. no more buying cartridges.
his accomplishments go beyond the college game he was an assistant coach for the dream team in barcelona. and he became the only head coach to lead a nation to five consecutive gold medals. he made duke so dominant they became the team outside everybody cameron indoor loves to hate. while you rooted against them, any real fan, undoubtedly respects them. the farewell tour looks to start this fall. when duke looks to rebound after missing the ncaa tournament for the first time since 1995. wow. the syracuse head coach jim boeheim with us now, he coached with coach k in 2008 olympic team and 2016. coach, thanks very much. i don't know what to say it's like part of my basketball life is disappearing. >> we're losing the best he's the best of the modern era.
you really stop and talk about coaches. john wooden's in his own category he's in his own category it's been almost 50 years and he's been the best coach and the best base for college basketball the olympic team, all that his leadership and obviously the time like this where we're desperate for leadership he's trying to provide it. roy williams is trying to provide it our new director in the nabc, craig robinson, is trying to provide this leadership. we need to get things settled for the players. the transfer portal is done. we need to get them in the nil and get the image and benefit financially. we need to get that done if they would live to guys like
mike krzyzewski, it would get down push it down to congress and they are having trouble deciding whether it's monday or tuesday down there i think coaches could do this. i think we could get this thing done and allow us to move forward and let the players benefit from their own images. that can be done why it hasn't been done, too many people trying to do something and it's too hard. mike is a guy you can listen to and he can give guidance if someone would listen it seems the last person or anybody wants to listen to are coaches in this day-to-day >> the people that do the work his wins tell the story but not all of it. it's one thing to win but to consistently win and to consistently have that quality of players amid rule changes and everything else, what is his special gift >> his ability to work with anybody.
the change when he went to the olympics and able to watch him work with lebron and the great players, how they just fell in line obviously, it's a favorable situation because we only had the nba players for about 35 days it's still to get them to play together, to get guys to say like dwyane wade said i'll come off the bench. chris paul at the height of his point guard career, is still pretty good right now, said, coach, i'll come off the bench mike krzyzewski was able to doo levels get his players to understand this is what we need to do this is the stan that at all levels and get the players to get his players to understand this is what we need to do this is the standard we need to have everybody thinks it's easy winning gold medals, it's not. >> nobody thinks that's easy coach, i'm completely out of time i need one thing one name who does duke go for >> well their assistant john, i'm sure will be the guy
there's a lot of guys that could do it but he's been there. he's right in the mix. he's been doing the recruiting he's recruited all of the players that are there, i'm sure he'll be the guy >> all right >> i don't think you'll get anybody else we're losing a great coach it's been an honor for me to just be his friend for your timt >> t >> coach boeheim, good luck to your orange and thanks for your time tonight >> thank you you know, we're 50 days out from the summer olympics in tokyo on nbc one of the most decorated american athletes will not be there.just today, kerry wals just today, kerri walsh jennings three time volleyball champion lost in qualifying round it would have been her sixth olympics at age 42, but one u.s. water polo player is still going for gold for the red, white and blue johnny hooper said he is doing it for his family and is not afraid to get a little hurt along the way. >> let the games begin my name is johnny hooper, i play water polo and i'm from pacific
