Canada is investigating a prolonged data security breach following the “detection of malicious cyber activity” affecting the internal network used by Global Affairs Canada staff, according to internal department emails viewed by CBC News.
The breach affects at least two internal drives, as well as emails, calendars and contacts of many staff members but that’s not all….
It’s not clear whether secret information was lost in the breach, which lasted longer than a month. It’s also not clear who was behind the breach.
GAC also said it’s looking into whether “sensitive corporate information,” such as credit cards and banking data, may have been breached.
