Technology vs phishing

Date: May 28, 2006

Goldleaf Technologies, a unit of Goldleaf Financial Solutions, Inc. (NASDAQ:GFSI) and a leading provider of Web-based ACH and check conversion solutions, announced today that it has identified and responded to attempts to redirect users to fraudulent Web sites.

On Thursday, May 25, Goldleaf Technologies' IT staff identified an attempt to redirect its clients' customers to a phishing website to entice them to enter their personal financial information. To ensure the security of the network, the company temporarily suspended all Internet access to Goldleaf Technologies' Web site services.

Goldleaf Chief Executive Officer, Lynn Boggs, said, "We have identified and corrected the problem. We have fully restored our Web site, remote deposit and ACH services. In addition to contacting our customers, we have communicated with our vendor partners, regulators and law enforcement authorities. We are fully operational and will remain diligent in our security efforts."
