On Tuesday, April 8, a serious website vulnerability was made public and has been widely discussed in news and social media outlets. TBACU’s online banking, ItsMe247, does not have the vulnerability so there is no need to reset your password at this time, though we do recommend changing your online password on a regular basis.
The vulnerability, named the “Heartbleed bug,” is a defect in the commonly used cryptographic software library called OpenSSL. The OpenSSL software library provides SSL/TLS encryption for many web services (like retail/business websites, social websites, email, etc.) and is used by companies all around the world.
Mashable.com has provided a list of some companies that are urging users to update their passwords. We will continue to provide updates as they become available.
