Apple stops patching QuickTime for Windows despite 2 active vulnerabilities
If your Windows computer is running Apple’s QuickTime media player, now would be a good time to uninstall it.
The Windows app hasn’t received an update since January, and security researchers from Trend Micro said it won’t receive any security fixes in the future. In a blog post published Thursday, the researchers went on to say they know of at least two reliable QuickTime vulnerabilities that threaten Windows users who still have the program installed.
“We’re not aware of any active attacks against these vulnerabilities currently,” they wrote. “But the only way to protect your Windows systems from potential attacks against these or other vulnerabilities in Apple QuickTime now is to uninstall it.”
