Well, probably but so what? If no one else has found out about it then it hasn't caused users any major trouble and the banks have covered any losses.
We know about the SSL/openSSL/Heartbleed breach because it is so ubiquitous that it is impossible to hide the breach by simply not telling anyone about it.
I don't see what Heartbleed has to to with this. Completely different software, environment, method of development, method of update, connectivity, insurance, business, etc etc. Yes, bugs happen. No, not all bugs are related. (ETA But speaking of Heartbleed, it was an update that caused the problem. So now, without any updates to XP, the likelihood of that kind of problem is way way less than OpenSSL, in addition to all the differences already mentioned.)
