Heartbleed Bug Update

Apr 15, 2014

First Florida Bank does not use OpenSSL for encryption.  Our web servers are not susceptible to the recently discovered Heartbleed vulnerability in OpenSSL.  Since the Internet can be a risky environment in which to exchange information, it is important to employ sound online security practices to help safeguard your sensitive information.  One way to accomplish this is to maintain a strict password policy for all Internet websites on which you have an account that stores any kind of confidential, sensitive, or personally identifiable information:

  • Choose a password that is hard for others to guess (not something that is related to commonly known information about you).
  • Choose a password that is complex (more than 8 characters and contains numbers and special characters).
  • Change your password regularly (at least every 30 days or after using it from a non-secure network, e.g.:  hotels, airports, cafés, etc.).
  • Use a different password for all websites that you access.
  • Never share your password with others.
  • Never write down your password.

Don’t store your password in a program or browser on your computer, even if it asks you to.
