When the CTV News Network was hacked last week, it was the third major television network to have their data stolen in just a few weeks.
It’s also the first time the hack has affected CBC’s digital platforms, as the broadcaster was able to restore access to the website and social media accounts of some of its reporters, producers and editorial staff.
The news agency’s website and apps were not affected, and no information was compromised in the breach, though it’s not clear how the hackers gained access to any of the broadcaster’s network infrastructure.
But the cyber attack has had an impact on CCTV’s digital offerings, with some CBC News sites now down, including its news website, news.cbc.ca, which is home to the daily CTVNews, a digital edition of CTV.ca.
In addition, CBC News TV shows and webcasts were affected, including some of Ctv’s popular programming, including CTV’s popular comedy, CTV Live.ca and CTV Comedy, as well as CTV Canada’s popular news and talk shows, CBC Live.
