The article states that credit unions like North East Community Credit Union had limited resources to use diligent software patching. So they adopted automated patching software called PatchPlus. The software is an automated software-patching service released by core processing vendor Avon, Connecticut-based COCC. PatchPlus implements the recent National Credit Union Administration (NCUA), an industry group, recommendations that push better monitoring, testing, installing and reporting patches by credit unions. In a letter the NCUA warns credit unions that they are responsible for risk stemming from vulnerable software.
