A London teen accused of hacking into the Canada Revenue Agency’s website with the Heartbleed bug has a new court date.

In April, the RCMP arrested 19-year-old Western University student Stephen Arturo Solis-Reyes over allegations that he was involved in the breach of private taxpayer data. The arrest came after news that around 900 Social Insurance Numbers were taken from the CRA’s system over a six-hour period.

During a search of his parent’s London home, police seized computer equipment as evidence.

On Thursday, Solis-Reyes was remanded on charges of mischief in relation to data and unauthorized use of a computer.

CBC News reports his next court date is August 14.
