We are happy to report that our AnchorLink® and Anchor Remote Deposit Capture services are not affected and are not vulnerable to the Heartbleed Bug.
According to Heartbleed.com “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 communications, steal data directly from the services and users and to impersonate services and users.”
Please use precautions to protect yourself by making frequent password changes, securing your confidential information, using industry leading fraud security products on your online devices to detect any viruses, avoiding suspect websites and ignoring/deleting any emails from unknown entities.
