IMPORTANT NOTICE - HEARTBLEED BUG
On April 7, 2014 an OpenSSL vulnerability was detected on a large number of websites. OpenSSL is used to provide security for information on the internet for roughly 2/3 of web servers. Websites with these vulnerabilities are susceptible to the “Heartbleed” bug. The “Heartbleed” bug may allow hackers to steal passwords and sensitive information, impersonate services, and eavesdrop on communications.
Once news broke of this virus our vendors jumped into action to ensure our site is not vulnerable. On April 8, 2014 our internet banking installed patches to eliminate vulnerabilities that the “Heartbleed” virus would exploit. We have been assured by our vendors that any vulnerability has been resolved.
Despite the assurance it is our recommendation that, at this time, our internet banking users change their passwords to their Fulda Area Credit Union home banking accounts. To accomplish this simply login, click on the Options tab, and select Security Settings from the drop-down list. Then click the button to change your password. You may also want to change your passwords on other sites that use OpenSSL security once you receive notification that they have made the appropriate updates.
One further step you can do to assure your information’s safety is to clear your cookies. Cookies are like a bookmark for the internet. This can be accomplished in most Windows systems by going to the Control Panel, clicking on Network and Sharing Center, then Internet Options. A window will pop up with Internet Properties, and an option to delete cookies will be in the middle of the window. Clicking the Delete button will take you to a new window where you can click a checkmark box for cookies and then click Delete on the bottom.
Please note that although a website does use the OpenSSL program that it does not mean that the site is vulnerable. Patches are being made to ensure there is no vulnerability. Please be assured that although you are being asked to change your password, this does not mean your information was compromised. The request to change your password is a preventative measure.
We appreciate your time and consideration regarding this matter. If you have any questions, please contact your local branch:
Fulda : 507-425-2544
PLEASE NOTE: If you receive any emails or calls from anyone stating they are verifying your information for your financial institution due to the Heartbleed bug or that they can help you verify if the site is vulnerable, do not provide any information or click on any links. Any attempts to have you click on a link or asking you for your personal information regarding this issue will not have originated from the Fulda Area Credit Union.
