Hackers Shutdown Canadian Government Database

The Canadian Treasury Board -- which supervises bureaucratic and government operations -- released a statement saying it had detected an "unauthorized attempt to access its networks.”

"There are no indications that any data relating to Canadians was compromised," Treasury Board Minister Stockwell Day told Reuters.

The hackers also targeted Defense Research and Development Canada -- a civilian branch of the National Defense Department that supports science and technology matters for the Canadian Forces.'
