Important Information Regarding Heartbleed OpenSSL Zero-day Vulnerability
AKA The “Heartbleed Bug”
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”). As of 15:39 MDT on 4/8/2014, impacted servers were patched to eliminate the Heartbleed zero-day vulnerability.
Due to the nature of the Heartbleed zero-day vulnerability, it is strongly recommended by industry security experts and regulators alike that all Internet banking login passwords should be changed as soon as possible. It is also recommended that they delete all “cookies.”
The Citizens State Bank of Ouray concurs with this industry recommendation and is asking all Online Banking Users to login in and change your password. You will automatically be prompted to change your password upon your initial login. The Citizens State Bank of Ouray is taking these steps as an extra precaution to ensure that any potential vulnerability will be mitigated.
Please rest assured that The Citizens State Bank of Ouray is constantly working with our service providers to continue to monitor the situation in conjunction with regulators, the security community and its technology partners.
Our customers are our top priority! Please don’t hesitate to contact Michelle or Joanne at our Ouray office should you have any questions regarding this issue.
