HACKERS HIT CANADA POST FOR ONTARIO CANNABIS STORE CUSTOMER INFO

Canada Post admits there was a privacy breach – involving thousands of Ontario’s online cannabis customers.

The federal agency says someone used its delivery tracking tool – to gain access to personal information of 4,500 customers – but it didn’t say what information was compromised.

However, the Ontario Cannabis Store says the information includes postal codes, dates of delivery of cannabis – and who signed for the package.

The government-run online retailer – the only legal outlet for marijuana in the province – also says Canada Post refused to notify customers about the breach.

The OCS has contacted customers – because it says the postal service did not take any action despite repeated requests.
