The only local bank I've heard any info about is Kiwibank, who are
apparently not vulnerable due to running their systems on Windows.
I believe at least one local bank runs most of their stuff on Linux, but
I haven't heard anything from them.
Perhaps (some of the) banks are a bit smaller here, and don't
necessarily run to the mainframes used elsewhere.
I certainly wouldn't jump to conclusions that they're a bank therefore
they use IBM mainframes therefore they don't use OpenSSL therefore
they're invulnerable, and I wish that they'd tell us either way.
