MJ Freeway discloses another cyberattack on the firm, affecting cannabis businesses

MJ Freeway, one of the first companies to create “seed-to-sale” tracking and business software for the legal cannabis industry, has just disclosed it was the target of another cyberattack; one that took place about a year ago.

The Denver-based company, which also provides tracking software for a number of state regulatory systems in addition to approximately 1,000 cannabis retailers across the U.S., also has been dealing with a string of hacks, system outages and other disruptions over the past several months.

According to a statement to its clients, published Tuesday on the firm’s website, MJ Freeway determined that “certain client information” had been stolen on or around Nov. 19, 2016, affecting businesses in multiple states. The data included customers’ date-of-birth and contact information, but no Social Security identification or credit or debit card numbers, according to the company.

The firm said it immediately launched an investigation and has been working with “third-party forensic investigators.”
