Bank of Lake Mills Statement on the Heartbleed Bug


Online Banking 

Bank of Lake Mills does not use OpenSSL, which is the only cryptographic software affected by this bug, in our online banking or online mortgage application products. However, we do recommend that you change your online banking password. Most people use the same password for multiple sites. Using a strong, unique password for online banking will help keep your information secure.

Debit Cards

If you haven't noticed any fraudulent activity on your card, it has probably not been compromised. However, we have no way to verify that. If you frequently shop online, you should monitor your account carefully, and notify us immediately of any suspicious activity.

Beware of Phishing Scams!

There are already several phishing scams being reported in connection to Heartbleed. Do not respond to emails with links claiming that your account is in jeopardy. BLM will not initiate unsolicited emails.  If you do have concerns with any service provider due to the Heartbleed Bug, you are encouraged to contact those businesses directly to avoid becoming a victim of a scam.
