April 10, 2014: Heartbleed Security Flaw
A bug, called Heartbleed, has attacked OpenSSL, one of the Internet’s key security methods, making user’s private information vulnerable to fraudsters.
Univest reviewed its Internet sites as well as sites of vendors that service our customers, such as Online Banking, and have determined the previously mentioned sites are not susceptible to the Heartbleed bug. OpenSSL contains the Heartbleed vulnerability and neither Univest nor its vendors currently use or ever used the OpenSSL protocol to secure internet transactions. Rather, Univest uses a commercial-grade and industry-standard 128-bit encryption SSL protocol from Symantec Corporation.
