Web security

19 Mar 2014

There has been a lot of discussion recently in regard to a security vulnerability in a version of OpenSSL, commonly known as the “Heartbleed Bug.”

This is to advise that Australian Unity websites are NOT affected by this vulnerability and we would like to assure you that your personal and payment information is secure. Hence, you do not need to take any additional action to safeguard your information.

While we always advise our members to be cautious and aware of the security of their personal information, in this case we want to reassure you there is no need to be unduly concerned.  When you login to the online member services using your user name and password these details were not exposed to the OpenSSL vulnerability.

If you have any further queries please contact us on 13 29 39.
