Why You Should Uninstall QuickTime ASAP.

Applies to QuickTime on Windows, not on Mac OSX - TrendMicro, the well known and reputable security company has issued what they describe as an "urgent call to action" following the discovery of two critical vulnerabilities in Apple's QuickTime player. What makes this situation "urgent" is that Apple is in the process of deprecating QuickTime for Windows and will no longer be issuing security patches for the product, so these 2 vulnerabilities are never going to be fixed.
