Omaha, Neb. (July 16, 2004) -- QuickBooks parent Intuit Inc. has warned roughly 47,000 customers that their credit card data and history are at risk following a theft of computers at an office here.

According to, the computers were taken last month from an office of ItsDeductible, a software manufacturer acquired by the Mountain View, Calif.-based Intuit last year.

Intuit sent a letter to affected customers last week, and has since posted a notice on its Web site.

The office was burglarized the weekend of June 11, according to the notice, and among the items taken was a PC with password-protected customer data. Intuit has advised the customers to contact their respective banks to have credit cards canceled or monitored for suspicious activity.
