Online CRA services taken offline after possible security risks”

A notice was posted on the agency's website that says it detected "an internet vulnerability" and took down many of its services, including electronic tax filing.

At this time, the Canadian Revenue Agency is not aware that any personal information has been affected; however, it continues to assess and remedy the situation.

The CRA's servers are on Shared Services Canada IP addresses, and according to Netcraft were running Apache 2.2.31 on *nix when last scanned on March 7, behind an F5 Big-IP for protection.

Canadians looking to get a head start on filing their taxes by going online experienced a setback this weekend. Individuals, businesses and representatives were again able to file returns, make payments, and access other digital services available through the CRA's website, including all its secure portals.
