The government agency made a decision to pull the sites back down at 2 p.m. on Friday after determining digital services were potentially at risk.

Treasury Board officials will provide details today about an online "vulnerability" that forced the shutdown of a number of federal services over the weekend, including electronic tax filing at the Canada Revenue Agency.

CRA said suspending the online services was a precaution, not the result of a successful hack or breach, and that maintenance security patches would ensure all information would remain safe.

CRA said it wasn't aware of any actual "unauthorized access to taxpayer information".
