Important Security Information About Malware


At Flagstar, we want to make sure your online experience is as secure as possible.

Please be sure to update your anti-virus and malware (also known as "malicious software") protection programs so they can detect malicious activity and remove the affected files and programs from your computer. Malware includes viruses, spyware, worms, and trojans that are designed to gather personal information in order to gain unauthorized access to information and accounts on your computer. 

Ways to minimize the risk of malware:
  • Always know the sources from which you are sharing and downloading information.
  • Have the most up-to-date anti-virus protection program installed on your computer and run full scans as often as possible.
  • Apply software patches (Windows®, Adobe®, Java™).
  • Close all pop-up advertisements that ask for personal information and provide links to unfamiliar websites.
