Heart Bleed Bug
On April 7, 2014, security researchers announced a recently-discovered vulnerability called Heart Bleed. By exploiting this vulnerability, attackers could access sensitive data, compromising the security of the server and its users. You may have read media reports that say that all online banking websites are vulnerable.
Digital Insight, our online banking vendor, takes security very seriously. They are aware of the Heart Bleed Bug (CVE-2014-0160) and have taken steps to evaluate whether there is impact.
After performing a thorough investigation, Digital Insight research indicates that this vulnerability does not impact Digital Insight Online Banking services because the encryption libraries used for Digital Insight Online Banking do not use the OpenSSL library that is the source of the vulnerability. However, there are a number of ancillary services within your online banking experience that have not yet completed their assessment. Rest assured that we are doing everything we can to help ensure that your information is safe. We will be sure to keep you updated.
