CRA website back online after cyberattacks's Profile



The Canada Revenue Agency is back online.

The CRA website was shutdown after fraudsters got their hands on usernames and passwords to get into government services.

It’s been offline since Saturday when more than 5,000 accounts were hacked.

Business accounts were back up Monday while the rest were restored Wednesday.

Anyone who was affected by the cybersecurity breaches will get a letter from the CRA explaining how they can confirm their identity to get access to their account again.

The CRA is urging everyone to update their accounts with new, unique passwords they aren’t using for any other account.

They say they have modified all their security systems to protect against other cyberattacks.
