IT experts still looking into things
0 0

While the Ontario government does use the OpenSSL software that's at the centre of the Heartbleed security bug, it doesn't seem as if anything's been compromised.

"As of right now, we have not seen any data, personal information or servers compromised as a result of the software flaw that has affected the federal government,"  Minister of Government Services press secretary Jenna Mannone said in an email.

However, she says the governments IT department is still working to make sure all of your personal information is protected.

"The Government of Ontario takes the security of its systems and the information contained on them very seriously," Mannone said.     

The province offers an array of online services through its Service Ontario portal - everything from driver's license renewal, changing your address and applying to get a marriage license.
