ST. PAUL - After being shut down for almost nine months over security lapses, the state's license tab renewal Web site went back online this week with extra safety measures.

The popular site was taken offline April 4 after an auditor discovered that data from millions of state residents could have been hacked.

An outside consultant probed the revamped site and found it to be safe for public use. The state spent $1.1 million to beef up the site's security, writing new code to run the site. The tab renewal site went back online Tuesday afternoon.
