Department of Homeland Security issues alert on Apple QuickTime

We wanted to be sure you know that the U.S. Department of Homeland Security has sent out an urgent alert telling Windows customers to uninstall Apple’s QuickTime program.

Apple decided this week not to issue any more security updates for QuickTime on Windows, despite two existing vulnerabilities.

Apple has created a page on its website that details how to uninstall QuickTime for Windows. https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT205771 .

In order to keep our customers secure, Integrity IT will automatically be removing QuickTime on Windows computers running our IT Radar management software. This alert does not apply to Apple computers.

If you do not want us to do this, please reply to this email, or call our Service Desk at 859.253.4284.

Over the past several years, QuickTime has largely been replaced by online media platforms, including YouTube, Facebook and Netflix. Only about 10% of our total managed Window endpoints are running QuickTime.
