The good news is our websites are not impacted by this bug. However, other sites you visit may be impacted so we have included some steps you can take to protect yourself:
· Make sure you use different passwords, and preferably usernames, for different websites. This is something you should be doing immediately.
· Due to the complex nature of this vulnerability, changing your passwords before websites update their version of OpenSSL will not protect you. So keep watching your mailbox and monitor which sites are being proactive and update your password once the website declares they have corrected the problem.
· Beware of phishing emails and type web addresses directly into a browser and do not click on a link embedded in an email.
· Monitor your bank and credit card accounts for unusual activity.
It may take an extended period of time for all websites affected by Heartbleed to fix this vulnerability.
Stay safe online.
