Oak Bay Municipal Hall

The District of Oak Bay is warning residents to monitor their bank accounts after the municipality’s online servers were hacked.

The municipality said its oakbay.ca website was attacked on July 22.

A preliminary review has not found any evidence that residents’ personal information had been compromised, but residents who use Oak Bay’s pre-authorized withdrawal system to pre-pay taxes are being urged to contact their banks for advice.
