Thousands Of Ontario Cannabis Store Customers Contacted As Data Security Goes To Pot

File under whoa, dude. The Ontario Cannabis Store (OCS) has become the first pot vendor to get the breach disclosure munchies since Canada legalized the sale of weed. Bad puns to one side, this is serious stuff. The OCS has contacted some 4,500 customers after a supply chain data breach resulted in buyer addresses being offered for sale on the dark web. The breach itself happened on November 1st when the delivery tracking resource of Canada Post, used by the store to ship cannabis orders, was apparently compromised. In a statement, a spokesperson for the OCS says that it has “worked closely with Canada Post to identify the cause of this issue and to prevent any further unauthorized access to customer delivery information.”
