Apple Ends Support for Quicktime for Windows
Apple has recently discontinued support for Quicktime for Windows. Starting mid April, Apple will no longer be releasing critical security updates for this software.
Unsupported software is vulnerable to outside threats and poses a significant security risk as illustrated by the discovery of two critical vulnerabilities affecting Quicktime for Windows which will not be patched by Apple.
To address these critical vulnerabilities Tier1Net will be proactively uninstalling Quicktime for Windows on all PCs within our clients’ networks in accordance with cybersecurity best practices.
Affected clients have already been notified of this pending action.
