The US Computer Security Readiness Team (CERT) on Thursday April 14, 2016 issued an alert after Trend Micro put out word that Apple will no longer be updating defenses in QuickTime and that two vulnerabilities in the program could be exploited by hackers and taken advantage of the QuickTime weaknesses
"Exploitation of QuickTime for Windows vulnerabilities could allow remote attackers to take control of affected systems," CERT said in the alert.
"The only mitigation available is to uninstall QuickTime for Windows."
The advisory did not apply to QuickTime running on Apple computers.
