Privacy and Security

Heartbleed Bug
Researchers have recently discovered a vulnerability in “Heartbeat,” a component of the encryption technology most Web servers use to provide a secure connection when collecting personal data to complete a login or transaction online.  This flaw, named the “Heartbleed Bug,” could allow attackers to intercept secure communications, and potentially obtain sensitive information including login credentials and passwords, credit card information, and e-mails. An attacker could exploit the defect in the encryption technology by initiating a malicious request from secure servers, which the server then returns without additional verification.  At this time, there are no known vulnerabilities on The Delaware County Bank Websites.

Microsoft Windows XP
Microsoft is ending support for the Windows XP operating system on April 8, 2014. This means that Microsoft will no longer issue updates for Windows XP, and computers running Windows XP will be increasingly vulnerable to compromise.

If your computer is running Windows XP, you should upgrade to a supported version of Windows to ensure that your computer receives the latest security updates from Microsoft. Also ensure that all security software such as anti-virus and anti-malware are up-to-date. (posted April 2014)

Fraudulent Emails and Websites
The Delaware County Bank and Trust Company would like to remind our customers to protect themselves from possible identity theft by remaining vigilant about sharing personal and account information with anyone.

The latest form of identity theft involves fraudulent emails sent to customers asking them to link to a bogus website and enter account and personal information. The bogus sites are designed to look like an official bank site, but they are not.
The Delaware County Bank and Trust Company will never ask our customers for account or personal information (Social Security Number, Personal ID, Account Numbers, etc.) via email.
If you feel that you may have received a fraudulent email, please follow these steps:
  • DO NOT reply to the email.
  • Contact DCB immediately at (740) 657-7200 or via email at
  • Our Computer Security Team will look into the fraudulent activity.
