Compass Bank - Possible Security Issues
Customers of Online Banking with Compass Bank should double check the upper left corner of their screen to make sure that their log on user ID is being encrypted (secret coded0. The URL address should show https:// Be sure that there is the letter "s" following http before you type in your User Name (ID). The "s" indicates that you are now in a "secure session". Compass Bank suggest that their online customers download and install the security software "Rapport" onto their PC. If you do this you should make sure that the Rapport designator (to the right of the URL box)shows up green before typing in any personal information. If the designator shows up grey then Rapport is not protecting anything.
I have found that over half of Compass Bank's online web sites are not being protected by Rapports security software. I am not suggesting that you change banks but only want to inform you on how to check for a "secure web session" when entering any personal information. The info that I have provided you here is a method of checking for security on all web sites when you are asked to enter personal information. The only reason that I mention Compass Bank is because I have spent hours of time with representatives of the bank with this security issue.
So far I have not found anybody within the bank that is concerned about it. Hopefully that will change in the near future. If so then I will update this information to you.
