Important Customer Alert Regarding Recent "Heartbleed" Computer Vulnerability
Over the past few days, there have been news reports about an OpenSSL vulnerability called “Heartbleed,” that could potentially compromise personal information. This is a critical vulnerability that can expose sensitive data, including passwords, to remote attackers.
TCF has tested its systems and determined that its web site, online and mobile banking applications are not vulnerable to the so-called “Heartbleed” attack. Customers’ personal and financial information are secure on TCF Bank’s systems.
TCF must also caution customers that while TCF Bank’s systems are secure, they need to take necessary precautions with their own personal computers and mobile devices to avoid potential attacks. An individual personal computer could become infected with a virus that compromises the transfer of confidential information.
TCF takes the security of its customers’ information very seriously and constantly monitors its systems for potential vulnerabilities. We actively maintain security programs that meet or exceed regulatory requirements and industry standards to ensure the protection of our web sites and applications as well as our customers’ information.
