US-CERT to Windows Users: Dump Apple Quicktime

Unread postby capnkrunch » April 18th, 2016, 6:08 pm

Microsoft Windows users who still have Apple Quicktime installed should ditch the program now that Apple has stopped shipping security updates for it, warns the Department of Homeland Security‘s U.S. Computer Emergency Readiness Team (US-CERT). The advice came just as researchers are reporting two new critical security holes in Quicktime that likely won’t be patched.

Haven't had Quicktime installed for years and it's a nag when you update iTunes, which I do use.
