Heartbleed is a new web security bug that affects versions of OpenSSL, software code that encrypts and protects passwords and other sensitive data. Please note that the affected technology, OpenSSL, is not used by Vanguard Credit Union and therefore the Heartbleed bug does not pose a threat to Vanguard Credit Union’s website, MemberDirect Online Banking, MemberDirect Small Business Online Banking, Mobile Web, or Mobile Banking services. Although this bug did not affect any of our services, we do remind members that it is good practice to change all passwords regularly (i.e. several times a year).
