As you may or may not know, Microsoft stopped providing security updates on their Windows XP platform effective on April 8, 2014. Anyone who uses the Windows XP operating system should be aware that there may be security risks involved in continuing to use this software.
Although this change will not have any effect on our Online Banking services, we just wanted to make sure that our customers were informed of the possible security risks involved with using Microsoft Windows XP. We encourage those of you using the software to educate yourselves about this matter. For more information, please visit the Microsoft website.
