Heartbleed bug does not affect Windsor Family Credit Union's banking platforms
WFCU is aware of the concerns regarding an Internet software security flaw known as Heartbleed that has garnered much media attention the last 48 hours.
OpenSSL, the technology affected by Heartbleed, is not used by MemberDirect® , the system that WFCU uses for our online banking.
WFCU is pleased to inform our members that the Heartbleed bug does not pose a threat to any of the direct banking platforms including Online Banking Services or Mobile Services (web and apps).
The Heartbleed bug takes advantage of a software defect that allows hackers to access web-encrypted sites and potentially access users’ personal information such as bank account numbers and passwords.
Members who want to take additional precautions to protect sensitive information may wish to change their passwords. However, you should not do this until you have confirmation that the site or application has been patched to address this issue.
More information on the Heartbleed bug is available at http://heartbleed.com.
