Much ado about nothing aparently…this warning came out for version 9…I will re-post the message that Doug Sleeter from The Sleeter Group posted to the group after hearing of this problem. I know I mention it a lot, but here is another example of the quality & power of networking that we have with our membership in The Sleeter Group.
Dear Sleeter Group,
I spoke with Intuit about this today and got the full story.
In short, this is a non-issue. They dealt with the problem back in
February. When users log in to QBOE, the updated ActiveX control
(version 10) gets downloaded to the client computer behind the scenes.
Here is the statement from Intuit:
“The current, and only, version available of QuickBooks Online Edition
does not have the ActiveX issue referenced by CERT. We take all
security concerns seriously and therefore began investigating the CERT
issue as soon as it was brought to our attention. Earlier this year,
we released a solution, version 10 of QuickBooks Online Edition, which
automatically removed the old ActiveX control and required all users
to automatically upgrade to version 10 upon logging into their accounts.”
