The MutualBank Charitable Foundation is proud to help fund the building of the new Combined Community Services building in Kosciusko County.  

On September 26, 2011, the MutualBank Charitable Foundation announced the awarding of a $10,000 grant to help fund the building of the new Combined Community Services (CCS) facility. The grant will be put toward the construction of the new facility in Warsaw which is scheduled to be completed in June 2012.

Currently CCS has reached over 80% of their total building fund project goal of $1.7 million. This project is under a considerable time pressure as the lease is up on the current building in June 2012 and those who have visited the current facility understand the need for space and storage was needed long ago.

CCS’ motto is “Helping Neighbors, Help Neighbors”. The collaboration of churches, businesses, foundations and individuals enables CCS to help others to achieve a higher quality of life. Or in MutualBank language, to help others live a better life.  MutualBank is proud to partner and support CCS as they look for new ways to remove barriers for low-income residents of Kosciusko County.

The MutualBank Charitable Foundation was created to establish a permanent source of funding for charitable causes in the MutualBank market areas, ensuring the continuation of the MutualBank heritage of supporting the community.

MutualBank, an Indiana-based financial institution, has thirty-two full-service financial centers in Delaware, Elkhart, Grant, Kosciusko, Randolph, St. Joseph and Wabash Counties in Indiana.  MutualBank also has two Wealth Management and Trust offices located in Carmel and Crawfordsville, Indiana and a loan origination office in New Buffalo, Michigan.  MutualBank is a leading residential lender in each of the market areas it serves, and provides a full range of financial services including wealth management and trust services and Internet banking services.  The Company’s stock is traded on the NASDAQ National Market under the symbol “MFSF” and can be found on the internet at www.bankwithmutual.com.

A new wi-fi security risk that may affect you

If you’re like most Americans, you probably access the internet most of the time from your home’s wireless network. While this is a nice convenience, having a router (the device that sends out the wi-fi connection signal) opens up some security vulnerabilities that you need to proactively protect against.

Whether your internet service provider  you a router or if you have your own, from time to time there can be different types of router-based vulnerabilities that emerge, potentially putting your browsing privacy and information at risk.


A New Router Vulnerability: The Misfortune Cookie


 A new vulnerability has been discovered that affects a least 12 million home or small office routers called the Misfortune Cookie (CVE-2014-9222). This vulnerability can be exploited to give an intruder remote access to a home router and can be used to attack different devices that are connected to that router.

If the attacker can exploit this Misfortune Cookie Vulnerability on your router, the attacker will now be in the middle between you and the internet. The attacker could see all information flowing in and out of that router. This could enable them to capture usernames/passwords, sensitive banking information, and many other types of highly sensitive information flowing though the router.

 


What can you do about it?


1. Check to see if your router model is on the vulnerability list:

2. Check with the maker of your router to see if they’ve released an update that fixes the Misfortune Cookie Vulnerability.

3. Enable a firewall
A firewall is a software program or piece of hardware that helps screen out hackers, viruses that try to reach your computer over the Internet. Most operating systems that come with a PC or an Apple computer have firewall capabilities. Learn more here (http://www.microsoft.com/security/pc-security/firewalls-whatis.aspx)

4. Make sure there is an “https://” at the beginning of your browser’s address bar when visiting a site.
This simply indicates that the site you are browsing has extra security protocols in place to protect your information shared on the site. This is especially important on sites where provide sensitive information (like your financial institution’s website or an online store).

5. Update all of your software regularly and use an antivirus program
Software programs also have potential to create security risks if they are not updated on a regular basis. Whenever there is an update for software you have, it’s always a best practice to install the update. The same goes for your antivirus software. Always make sure it’s up to date and running on your machine / device.
