NOTE: On April 8, 2014, the National Cyber Awareness System announced the discovery of a zero-day vulnerability within the widely used web encryption technology referred to as “OpenSSL.” The threat and incident management team of our internet banking provider immediately began evaluating the vulnerability with OpenSSL, and worked in conjunction with its technology partners (hardware, software, security, etc.) to ensure that the necessary measures were in place to prevent compromise to our systems. Our internet banking provider was able to quickly provide a vulnerability patch for these servers. As of 4/8/2014, impacted servers were patched to eliminate the Heartbleed zero-day vulnerability. As part of our normal process, our internet banking provider will continue to monitor the situation in conjunction with the security community and our technology partners.
