    Security Alert: Heartbleed SSL Vulnerability - 4/10/2014

    The “Bug”:
    On Tuesday April 8, 2014, news broke that the safeguard that many websites use to protect sensitive information on the internet has had a major security flaw for about two years. These sites use a security system called OpenSSL to encrypt data, such as content, passwords, and Social Security numbers. But thanks to a small coding error in a popular version of OpenSSL, nicknamed "Heartbleed," hackers can potentially steal sensitive data from vulnerable websites.

    Oneida Savings' Response:
    Oneida Savings is fully aware of the issue and we have reviewed our servers and network structure. We routinely employ internal and external resources to identify and mitigate potential vulnerabilities. As an added precaution we have replaced our online banking security certificate. No evidence of exploitation has been detected.

    What You Can Do:
    It is widely recommended that you change your password on any site where you have entered sensitive information such as Social Security Number, account numbers, credit card information, etc. However DO NOT follow links in emails that invite you to change your passwords as this may be phishing, a common ploy to gain access to your secured information. Instead go directly to each site to change your password.

    Note that you should change your password on sites after they are known to be free of this vulnerability. It is possible to test websites for this vulnerability by using tools which can be found by searching for "test for heartbleed". It is safe to change your password on Oneida Savings' online banking.
