Heartbleed - OpenSSL Bug

According to recent internet security reports, there is a new bug attacking sites that use OpenSSL called Heartbleed. Heartbleed is a security vulnerability in OpenSSL, a popular, open-source protocol used to encrypt vast portions of the web. It's used to protect your usernames, passwords, and sensitive information set on secure websites. The bug allows attackers to pull information at random from site servers which may or may not include important and private data. If you use popular websites and emails such as yahoo and flickr we would advise you to change your passwords and avoid those websites until they have fixed their vulnerability.

Austin Telco would like to notify our members that we do not employ OpenSSL for data encryption. Austin Telco online banking services are not subject to the Heartbleed vulnerability.
