I'm glad I don't have an online account with CRA. Hackers always seem to find a way into Government-related platforms though you'd think they would have the best resistance against it.

No one breached the site. They checked the dark web for people selling usernames and passwords, and found these accounts may be using the same username or password as the ones being sold online.

The website wasn't breached, it's people re-using their logon credentials on many different websites that leads to the hack.
