Critical Update for Microsoft Users

NBT Bank makes every effort to ensure that our customers’ information is protected.  At this time we want to advise our customers of a critical Microsoft Update that is available to any Microsoft user.  This update was released on January 28, 2011. The update is in result of Microsoft investigating new public reports of a vulnerability in all supported editions of Microsoft Windows. The vulnerability could allow an attacker to cause a victim to run malicious scripts (i.e. Zeus malware) when visiting various Web sites, resulting in information disclosure.

If you currently have automatic updating enabled on your PC, please be sure to verify that your updates are current. Customers who have not enabled automatic updating will need to check for the updates and install this update manually. Please be sure to speak with your IT professional prior to installing any updates.

For additional information regarding this update please visit the following websites. Please copy and paste the following links into your web browser:
