The Online Security Firm, Trend Micro recently found two vulnerabilities in the software, warned users about the exploitation of these vulnerabilities. The Trend Micro noted that there is no news about the exploitation of these two vulnerabilities in the QuickTime, but as Apple is not providing further support or patches for this software, the Vulnerabilities will stay malicious for an extended time. The Department of Homeland Security warned users of QuickTime Software on Windows that, if you don’t uninstall the software from PC, then be ready to face the loss of identity, Important documents stored on PC and others.
The QuickTime software support was revoked by Apple the long time ago, but the Software is still getting security patches and upgrades in Mac OS.
