Special Alert: Heartbleed OpenSSL Vulnerability
Your accounts are safe at Capital Bank! We have reviewed our systems and believe that we are unaffected and not vulnerable to the Heartbleed OpenSSL vulnerability.
Heartbleed is a flaw in the programming on secure websites that could put your personal information at risk, including passwords, credit card information and e-mails. The Heartbleed Bug is a defect in encryption technology – called Open SSL – used by most Web servers to secure users’ personal or financial information. It is behind many “https” sites that collect personal or financial information.
Please take precaution to protect your personal information by contacting other websites you may use to determine if they are vulnerable, change passwords frequently, use anti-virus protection, avoid suspect websites and ignore and delete any emails from unknown entities.
