POODLE Browser Exploit

An online security vulnerability known as POODLE was recently discovered in the design of SSL version 3.0, a standard technology used by Internet browsers to securely communicate with websites. This vulnerability could be exploited by criminals in order to intercept and view secure communications.

Advantage One's Response
To provide the highest level of security possible, we are in the process of disabling the use of SSL 3.0 on our website and in MyBranch Online Banking. Most current web browsers use the newer TLS protocol by default. If your browser is updated, you should not notice any change in the way you interact with our website or MyBranch.

Action Required for Older Browsers
Older browsers, such as Internet Explorer 6.0 and earlier, use SSL 3.0 by default and require action.

To continue using the website and MyBranch, members with older browsers must:
• Update to a newer browser, or
• Manually enable the TLS protocol in the older browser.

To manually enable TLS:
• Open a window in your older browser
• Click on the Tools link in the top menu bar and select Internet Options
• Click the Advanced tab and scroll down to the Security section
• Check the boxes next to TLS 1.0, TLS 1.1, and TLS 1.2.

Please seek professional assistance if necessary.
