During a security review, Intuit has discovered an undisclosed amount of TurboTax accounts that have been breached, exposing sensitive customer information. Intuit concluded that the accessed accounts were part of other third-party data breaches and the result of credential re-use on the Intuit platform. After the discovery, Intuit sent a breach notification letter to affected customers and has disabled the accounts. Affected customers must contact Intuit’s Customer Care department (1-800-944-8596) and say “security” at the prompt to speak with an employee who will then work to verify the customer’s identity and restore access.
