Today’s tech news is reporting a critical new bug called the “Heartbleed” bug. This bug is a vulnerability that can be found in many secured websites. It allows an attacker to gain user login information from a web server. We are happy to report that online banking products at Branson Bank are not affected by this vulnerability. Information entered while logging into our Freedom Online Banking is not vulnerable to this attack. Many other banking, credit card, and retail sites are vulnerable however. For the security of your other accounts we recommend that you change your password on secured sites you use for online access to your credit card accounts, other banking institution sites, online email, retail, or money transfer websites. Those service providers will have information and recommendations concerning their sites, but changing passwords is a key way to be certain your privacy is not compromised. Thank you for being customers of Branson Bank.
