On April 7th, security researchers announced a recently discovered security flaw in a popular, open-source data encryption standard, OpenSSL, called Heartbleed. This flaw could give hackers the ability to extract data from the very services that we use every day and was announced that it could have been in place for the last two years.
SF Police Credit Union is aware of this vulnerability and has taken steps to evaluate whether there is impact. All critical systems, including our website and Online Banking sites have been checked and we are not vulnerable to this bug on those systems.
Many reputable organizations are advising consumers to update your passwords on sites that have applied the fix already.
