On Wednesday 17th of June, Canadian government websites went dark due to a cyber attack. Mr Clement, a Member of Parliament and president of Treasury Board, said he did not know where these problems came from and if any data have been stolen or not. Three hours only after the break down, these issues were partially fixed.
A YouTube video has been posted and it claims that the Anonymous hacking group was responsible for the attack.
