Washington pot-tracking system, already dogged with problems, was hacked, state says

February 8, 2018 |

The state’s new pot-tracking system was hacked last weekend, and an “intruder” stole route information associated with four days of marijuana deliveries, as well as other information.

“It was a breach of the system and indications show they downloaded a copy of the traceability database,” said Brian Smith, a spokesman for the Liquor and Cannabis Board (LCB). “It did something in the system — I’m not at liberty to talk about — that affected the transfer and manifest data — that was, in part, responsible for the issues this week.”
