WASHINGTON: The Washington State Liquor and Cannabis Board (WSLCB), the regulatory agency overseeing the state’s licensed cannabis program, issued a warning to this morning that it’s seed-to-sale tracking system had been hacked.
In an email entitled, “Potential Phishing Email Directed at Licensees” the WSLCB alerts licensees about a phony email containing malware:
“The fake email appears to be from MJ Freeway with the subject listed as ‘MJ Freeway Data Request.’ The message is not from a domain owned by MJ Freeway nor connected with MJ Freeway in any way. It could be a phishing scheme (meant to grab data from you or download a virus into your computer). Please delete the email without clicking any of the links.”
