US-CERT (United States Computer Emergency Readiness Team) of the Department of Homeland Security has recommended that all Windows users uninstall Apple QuickTime from their computer. According to an blog posted by Trend Micro, Apple will no longer update QuickTime for Windows. This announcement coupled with known vulnerabilities within the software makes it ripe for hackers to exploit and infect a user’s computer. Instructions for removal can found at https://support.apple.com/HT205771.
We at That PC Dude will be removing QuickTime from computers we service but if you need assistance to remove now, please contact us.
