“We are not aware of any active attacks against these vulnerabilities currently. 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,” Reuters quoted the company.

“These advisories are being released in accordance with the Zero Day Initiative’s Disclosure Policy for when a vendor does not issue a security patch for a disclosed vulnerability,” the company stated.

Technology giant Apple will not roll out security updates for “QuickTime for Windows” after security software company Trend Micro Inc. reported that two new critical vulnerabilities are affecting the software.

Because Apple is no longer providing security updates for “QuickTime on Windows”, these vulnerabilities are never going to be patched.

Now you have a good reason to uninstall Apple’s QuickTime from your computer before it’s too late.
