Heartbleed Bug Shuts Down CRA website

You won't be able to e-file your tax returns for the next little while.

The Canada Revenue Agency still has its website shut down over security concerns.

The precautionary move is related to the "Heartbleed Bug" - a newly discovered software that can swipe passwords and your personal information.

In a message posted online, the agency states it has temporarily closed its services site "to protect the security of taxpayer information."

The agency will provide daily updates until the situation is resolved.
