The Heartbleed Bug

Settlers bank has investigated its systems — including Personal and Business Online Banking, and Remote Deposit Capture — and verified that we are not using Open SSL and are therefore not vulnerable to Heartbleed.

Be aware that your sensitive data, such as passwords, may have been seen by a third party if you visited other sites that use a vulnerable version of Open SSL Library. To protect your data:

  • Update your passwords now, including your Settlers bank Online Banking password
  • Watch out for phishing emails from attackers asking you to update your password. To avoid going to an impersonated website, do not click on any links provided. Go directly to the official site domain.
  • Visit only reputable websites and services. They are most likely to have addressed the vulnerability immediately.
  • Monitor your bank and credit card statements to check for any unusual transactions
