►Heart Bleed Bug:
By now, you might have heard about the “Heartbleed Bug” that has been reported about in the news media. “Heartbleed” results from a programming flaw in OpenSSL, open-source encryption. Open-source encryption is the standard utilized by most websites that transmit data securely. The vulnerability has been unknown and present for approximately two years.
Changing your password is the most effective protection you can take to secure your personal data. Although United Bank’s online banking service provider has confirmed that all necessary steps have been taken to ensure the security of our clients’ nonpublic data, we strongly recommend that you change your password now, as an additional security measure.
Instructions: after you have logged into United Bank SWIFT Banking Service, select “Options,” from the drop down menu, and then the second option in the drop down menu, “Change Password.” Enter your new password, confirm your new password, and you have completed the process. We encourage you to take advantage of this security measure today.
The security of our clients’ nonpublic information is our top priority. At United Bank, we are committed to data security, and will continue to monitor developments so that we can communicate news and safety recommendations to you. Thank you for maintaining your banking relationship with United Bank.
