Heartbleed Bug: Recent news reports have been warning consumers about the “Heartbleed” computer software bug that has been compromising certain websites and applications. The so-called Heartbleed bug takes advantage of a software defect that allows hackers to access web-encrypted sites and potentially access users’ personal information such as bank account numbers and passwords. Rest assured that the affected technology, OpenSSL, is not used by OMISTA Credit Union’s online banking services. Therefore the Heartbleed bug does not pose a threat to any of the Credit Union direct banking platforms including MemberDirect® Online Services, MemberDirect® Integrated Services, MemberDirect® Mobile Services (web and apps) MemberDirect® Small Business and MemberDirect® Business. OMISTA Credit Union takes online security seriously and works diligently to ensure the online banking safety of our customers.
