Stagefright Android Vulnerability

Dear FSB Customers, you may be hearing about the Stagefright vulnerability in the news.  As clarification, Stagefright is specific to Android devices.  It is not a vulnerability in Farmers State Bank's systems or our digital banking platform.

Stagefright is a remote execution bug, which allows hackers to infilitrate Android devices by sending messages to the device.  If you use an Android device, as a security best practice, we recommend that you temporarily disable Multimedia Messaging Service (MMS) on your device.  Disabling MMS will prevent media files from being sent to your device.  Normal text messages and hyperlinks should continue to function.

A description of the steps necessary for disabling MMS is available here: Instructions for Disabling MMS.
If you have questions about the availability of a patch for your specific device or disabling MMS, you should contact your phone carrier.
