Canadian cannabis giant Aurora said it is consulting with security experts after hackers accessed the company’s data bases over the holidays. Aurora reported a “cybersecurity incident” on Dec. 25, but at the time the company said no data was compromised, and operations were unaffected. But data purported to be from Aurora was later offered for sale on an online marketplace that specializes in hacked databases. The seller offered 11 sample images as “proof of concept,” including a passport that appears to belong to Darryl Vleeming, Aurora’s chief information officer, and an Alberta driver’s license appearing to belong to Amy Lamoureux, a supply chain manager at the company.
