Brandon,MB, Canada, 15th Jun 2022, King NewsWire, QuickBooks users are being attacked by an unknown threat actor phishing for sensitive personal information, the software’s maker has warned.
According to a report by Bleepingcomputer, a number of users reached out to Intuit, to alert the company to a phishing email that tries to scare people into giving away sensitive information. Subsequently, Intuit issued a warning to all users, detailing the campaign.
Apparently, victims will receive an email pretending to be from Intuit, which warns that the company has conducted an account review has not been able to verify some important information.
As usual, QuickBooks users are advised not to open any links or run any email attachments coming from unverified sources. Any such emails that they receive should be deleted immediately, while those that have already opened up the emails should delete any files they might have downloaded, scan their systems with antivirus software and change their QuickBooks passwords.
Users are required to choose a complex password for files containing sensitive data such as social security numbers, credit card numbers and employers’ identification numbers. In case of a forgotten password, E-Tech recommends using the QuickBooks Password reset tool.
If all else fails. E-Tech’s Password Recovery Service will recover or reset the QuickBooks’ password from all versions of QuickBooks data files. With the Administrator password, the service can recover or reset the password from the data file.
