More Bad news... Windows users: Uninstall Apple’s QuickTime now
Another major warning…
If your Windows PC still runs Apple's QuickTime, it's time to find another video player.
The Department of Homeland Security just issued a warning that recommends removing QuickTime for Windows after cyber security firm Trend Micro reported finding two "critical vulnerabilities" in the program, which Apple will no longer be providing security updates for.
Software often stills works after a company ends support, but users are left at risk because newly discovered security problems won't be fixed. The warning only applies to the Windows version of QuickTime, so Mac users don't need to worry about it… for now!
