The 'Heartbleed' bug and your Kootenay Savings business
There has been a lot of information in the news lately about the Heartbleed Bug. We are pleased to report that the technology affected by the recently uncovered bug, OpenSSL, is NOT used by any of our online channels (web, online banking, mobile banking and associated apps) therefore we are not vulnerable to this issue. This means that the Heartbleed bug does not pose a threat to our members.
Your money and personal information held at Kootenay Savings continues to be safe and secure.
