Canada says patches major websites after discovering vulnerability

TORONTO, March 13 (Reuters) - Canada's federal government said on Monday that it has patched a security vulnerability in Apache software that forced it to take down major government websites including its tax authority over the weekend.

While the sites, including the Canada Revenue Agency, had the potential to be exploited, there is no evidence that data had been breached, a Treasury Board official said. (Reporting by Alastair Sharp; editing by Denny Thomas and G Crosse)
