< p class="StyledBodyHtmlParagraph-sc-48221190-4 hnvfyV">Global Affairs Canada is investigating a security breach that potentially exposed the personal data and emails of several of its employees for just over a month.

This flaw was spotted following the detection of malicious cyber activity affecting the internal network used by Global Affairs Canada staff, according to internal department emails viewed by CBC News.

The breach affects at least two internal drives, as well as the emails, calendars and contacts of many staff members.

CBC News spoke with multiple sources aware of the situation, including employees who have received instructions on how the breach affects their ability to work. As of last Wednesday, some were asked to stop working remotely.

Additionally, CBC News has seen three internal emails sent to Global Affairs staff. Work is ongoing, but initial results suggest many [Global Affairs Canada] users may have been affected, one of the messages said.
