Bugs Plague QuickBooks’ Online Service, US Gov’t Warns – read the article linked below.
This is an interesting article from PC World regarding QuickBooks Online Edition and vulnerabilities leaving your computer open to hackers.
This being said, even prior to online edition exploits we never recommended QuickBooks Online Edition. There are so many features that we lose by going with the web-based system. The features through the web just have not caught up to QuickBooks for PC yet.
On a different note, I know there are a lot of users using QB Online for the ease of access due to the fact that you can access it from any internet connection. There are other alternatives to this though without losing the functionality of QB for PC. It is an ASP solution, sometime called terminal server hosting. We’ll get into that in the near future, certainly if you have questions or comments leave them here for me or e-mail directly…just let me know your reading the blog so I’ll know how to respond.
Till next time,
