Hackers attacked Saskatchewan government computers during Potash bid

SASKATOON — Hackers targeted Saskatchewan government computers during the multi-billion dollar takeover bid of Potash Corporation of Saskatchewan, says the head of information technology for the province.

The provincial Information Technology Office said Thursday that an unsuccessful attack was made on government computers during BHP Billiton's takeover bid of PotashCorp. last year. The attempt mirrored an attack on federal governments computers in early 2011 that aimed to get information about the Saskatchewan potash industry.

The two potash companies involved in the takeover bid — PotashCorp. and BHP Billiton — both said the companies do not speak about security issues and did not confirm or deny attacks were made on their systems. The federal government previously has declined to confirm the attack.
