Miscalibrated Internet Receptor Stalks

Revenue Canada (the Canadian equivalent of the IRS) revealed today that the Social Insurance numbers of about 900 Canadians were stolen from the Agency's website through use of the Heartbleed Bug.

Apparently the theft came to light while they were fixing the bug last Friday, but the information was only released to the public today. Revenue Canada says that the data theft occurred over a 6 hour period but did not specify when this period of time occurred.
