TORONTO, Feb. 2, 2016 /CNW/ - During the holiday season, we received reports that our website http://www.180smoke.ca may have been compromised resulting in fraudulent credit card purchases for some customers. We immediately investigated and resolved the issue, and contracted a third party security expert firm to conduct a top to bottom analysis . After a detailed investigation, it was recently concluded that a cyber attack similar to that on other major retailers' websites (such as Walmart) occurred and may have in fact left us vulnerable. We have been able to locate and eliminate any and all threats. Measures taken include installing additional layers of firewall, malware protection, continuous real-time monitoring, and a complete overhaul of our front end in its entirety.
180 Smoke does not have the ability to store any credit card information, and customers can be assured that this did not affect credit card purchases at any brick and mortar location, where requirements include the card to be present and pin code verification.
180 Smoke takes credit card fraud very seriously, and commits to continuously and rigorously analyze all security measures to eliminate the risk that hackers pose. We profoundly apologize to any of our clients that may have been left vulnerable by this attack.
