The Heartbleed Bug "ALERT"
The Heartbleed Bug is a serious vulnerability in the popular OpenSSL cryptographic
software library. This weakness allows stealing the information protected,
under normal conditions, by the SSL/TLS encryption used to secure the Internet.
SSL/TLS provides communication security and privacy over the Internet for
applications such as web, email, instant messaging (IM) and some virtual
private networks (VPNs).
The Heartbleed bug allows anyone on the Internet to read the memory of the systems
protected by the vulnerable versions of the OpenSSL software. This compromises the
secret keys used to identify the service providers and to encrypt the traffic, the names and
passwords of the users and the actual content. This allows attackers to
eavesdrop on communications, steal data directly from the services and users
and to impersonate services and users.
Union Bank is aggressively working with all our vendors to verify their systems are secure.
Our core operations and major vendors have already reported that they have updated
their security measures and installed patches to deter the ‘bug’ contamination.
They are confirming their systems are currently not vulnerable to the ‘bug’.
Since Internet usage affects us all, you the customer will also need to take
precautions when accessing websites. There is a website that
contains excellent data on the ‘bug’ [ http://heartbleed.com/ ]. You can also check
the vulnerability status of websites by visiting http://filippo.io/Heartbleed/ .
The international news stations are also telling the public to change all your passwords to your online
accounts. They are also suggesting you use complicated passwords. “Password123”
is not secure enough. Use words that are not in the dictionary or acronyms for a more
secure password development.
Union Bank will keep you updated on any changes to this new development.
If you have additional questions, please email us at email@example.com or
call the IT Department at 304-652-3531 X106.
