A new email from Intuit on QuickBooks security update has created quite a buzz in various forums directly associated with QuickBooks accounting and financial management software. Now people wonder what this new update actually means. After an evaluation it was detected that the actual issue was not with the update, but it is related to specific QB versions and consequences if QB users don’t update. The email is meant for QuickBooks users and ProAdvisors and it is titled “Action Required: Critical QuickBooks Security Update.” It tells that the software maker Intuit has “released a critical update to your QuickBooks software” and prompting QB users to update as soon as possible to make certain uninterrupted service for their QuickBooks features.
If QB users don’t go for the new update they are likely to have no active technical support from Intuit for existing products. But independent technical support providing companies offer QuickBooks support via a remote support service so that QB users can resolve all issues successfully. This update is likely to put a negative effect on all versions of QuickBooks desktop from 2013 through 2016 for all US versions. These QB products have been updated via the ULIP release which is an ultra light patch for updating a QB product. If QB users have “automatic updates” enabled, then ULIPs will be installed automatically.
The security release will be included in the following releases: 2016 R3 (ULIP), 2016 R9, 2014 R10 (ULIP), and 2013 R15. If QB users have issue regarding this update, then QuickBooks support for security update can make things happen.
For the QB users who are not technically sound, the critical security update seems like a bad idea as they are concerned about the safety of their valuable data. For them, it could be a security compromise. This security update seems harmless to your data as it is a pro-active update to confirm better security controls for the purpose of signing in across different Intuit products and services. Intuit will, finally, unveil a “multi factor authentication” feature and it will put no negative impact on your company file data. So, don’t consider the update as a panic because Intuit itself says “recommend to install these updates at your earliest convenience,” in its own support website. Even if any issue occurs, Intuit-certified technical professionals know how to fix all issues concerned with the surprise security release from Intuit.
