Spectre and Meltdown - What You Need to Know

Hackers are always ready to exploit any opportunity to steal and misuse information. Two recently identified security flaws could allow hackers to steal sensitive data without your knowledge.

Meltdown and Spectre exploit critical vulnerabilities in computer processors to allow programs to steal data processed on a computer. This might include passwords stored in a password manager or browser, your personal photos, emails, instant messages and even business-critical documents.


In response to these identified security flaws, Gorham Savings Bank is deploying recommended updates to address the vulnerabilities and monitoring industry news for any new developments. We are also working with vendors to determine their plans to address the issues within their own environments.


What Can You Do to Protect Yourself?

Keep systems up to date (e.g. Windows updates)

Contact your computer/device manufacturer to determine what updates they recommend.
Don’t hesitate to visit your nearest branch location or contact the Customer Service Center any time you have a security concern related to your Gorham Savings Bank account.
