Ca: Federal tribunal targeted in cyberattack

The Canadian Press reports:

Hackers have broken into the network of the tribunal that adjudicates disputes between public servants and the federal government.

The website of the Public Service Labour Relations and Employment Board has been down since Friday after security officials discovered hackers had exploited a weakness to get into the tribunal’s public network.

It’s not known how long the hackers were in the system, or exactly what — if anything — they took during the breach, which was discovered last Thursday.


Although the paste has been removed and the news report doesn’t mention it, this appears to be the work of hackers protesting C51.
