April 17, 2014


In light of the recent announcement regarding a security bug in the open source OpenSSL cryptography widely used on the Internet, known as the Heartbleed bug, RepublicBankAz is providing this update to users of our website(s).


The RepublicBankAz websites do not use OpenSSL encryption and were therefore not vulnerable to the Heartbleed bug. While our website and Internet banking platforms were not at risk, it is always a good security practice to change all online passwords periodically, using a unique password for each website.


If you have any questions about accessing our website or Internet banking platforms please contact info@republicaz.com or call us at 602.277.2500.
