A review has been performed on all of our online systems for the Heart Bleed bug and no vulnerabilities have been found on First Southwest Bank systems and no data has been affected on our network. Because of the large scope of servers and systems affected with this bug worldwide, we do recommend changing passwords on all online banking and other similar systems as many people use the same password and login information could have been compromised on another system.
