Tax returns can once again be filed electronically on CRA website

The Canada Revenue Agency has restored service to online users after parts of its website were shut down Friday afternoon over the discovery of a security vulnerability.

Sections of the federal agency's website, including those that allow residents to file their taxes online, were taken down around 1 p.m. Friday.

Some services affected are: My Account, My Business Account, Represent a Client, the MyCRA mobile application, the MyBenefits mobile application, Netfile, EFILE and Auto-Fill My Return.

House returning to Green Bay, Elliott signs one year deal
While the Packers lost a fixture at running back on Tuesday, they are set to fill a spot in the secondary with a familiar face. According to the NFL Network, the Packers will pay House $3.5 million on a one-year deal.

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 Statistics Canada website was still offline as of Sunday night.

CRA said suspending the online services was a precaution, not the result of a successful hack or breach, and that maintenance security patches would ensure all information would remain safe.

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.

If you attempted to file your return as the website went down, the CRA says the return was only filed if you received a confirmation code. "We are now confident that the solution has been rigorously and successfully tested and services returned online".
