Community Pride Bank was not affected by the Heartbleed threat
Many of you have recently heard media reports about the Heartbleed threat that has affected a large number of internet sites. Heartbleed is a name used to describe a security vulnerability in Open SSL – a popular, open source protocol used to protect user names, passwords, and sensitive information on secured websites.
Our Internet Banking service providers have informed us that they do not utilize the vulnerable technology.
Consumers should be advised to be certain that they are using precautions to protect themselves by frequent password changes, securing confidential information, using industry leading fraud security products on their online devices to detect any viruses, avoiding suspect websites, and ignoring/deleting any emails from unknown entities.
