What is the Heartbleed bug?
The Heartbleed bug is a flaw to encryption software that protects some websites and could expose personal information, such as usernames and passcodes.
Are M&T's and Wilmington Trust's websites vulnerable to the Heartbleed bug?
We have not experienced any issues related to the Heartbleed bug. Please be assured that M&T Web Banking and M&T Mobile Banking, and Wilmington Trust online services do not use the encryption software that is vulnerable to the Heartbleed bug.
What should you do?
Although our websites are not directly vulnerable to the Heartbleed bug, it is a good idea to use a unique user name and passcodes on our services, and change your passcodes regularly. Having usernames and passcodes that are used only at M&T Bank or Wilmington Trust and conducting periodic passcode changes are components of an overall approach to protecting personal information. Please review guidelines on how you can protect your information.
We also offer services, such as alerts, that will help you monitor transactions on your accounts through text, email or notifications through our mobile app.

Information security is extremely important to M&T Bank and Wilmington Trust. We work diligently to maintain high-levels of security and use sophisticated technologies to protect customer accounts and information.
