A security breach at CPA Network websites has affected at least one million CPA members and the CPA Group is working to fix the issue, a spokesperson said today.
The CPA Alliance and CPA Foundation are aware of the issue.
“We are working to resolve the issue and we apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused,” said CPA Federation President Gary P. McManus in a statement.
The breach affects CPA websites for the CFPPA, CPA Professional, CFA, CMA, and CSA programs.
The breach affects only the websites for those CPA programs that use the CAAX and CAA XE programs.
“As soon as we discovered this issue, we immediately contacted the affected CPA organizations and we are working with them to resolve it as soon as possible,” McManuses said.
The breached websites include those of the CFA program, CAA Professional, and the Professional, the spokesperson said.
The CPA Institute, the CGA, and other organizations also have experienced the issue on their websites, the source said.
This is a developing story.
