A week ago, cannabis software company MJ Freeway suffered an attack that took it offline, as first reported by Chris Walsh of Marijuana Business Daily. A week later, the company has not yet been able to fully restore service to its dispensary clients. The company has been posting updates to its Facebook page and included this statement on 1/14 from Amy Poinsett, its CEO & Co-Founder:

Since the attack on MJ Freeway’s infrastructure, everyone at MJ Freeway has been working very hard to bring clients back online, including myself and Jessica Billingsley, Co-Founder and COO.

I wanted to speak to you directly. I’ve called many clients, but since it’s impossible to reach you all by phone at once, I’m sharing this video message.

MJ Freeway will continue to serve our clients now and in the future. We’re standing with you and are committed to doing whatever it takes to get you back up and running. Thank you for being with us.

Poinsett’s message indicated that its encryption measures protected all patient data. The company continues to migrate its clients to alternate sites, which is a time-consuming process.
