Security, Quicktime is No longer supported

I can't run QuickTime anymore on my machine.

Two critical vulnerabilities have been found in QuickTime for Windows. The vendor, Apple, has recently confirmed that they will no longer fix security issues with this product, leaving any systems running this software vulnerable to attack.

What We're Doing

We have created a domain-wide rule that will disallow QuickTime from running on Windows systems that are joined to UOFI Active Directory.

The rule was applied on May 23, 2016.

When this rule is applied, customers who try to run QuickTime or open a QuickTime file will receive an error message that this program is blocked. Please note that Lynda.com still allows people to set their default players to Quicktime, so that won't work anymore while using that service.

What You Can Do

Remove QuickTime for Windows from all machines in your unit, and switch to alternatives like Windows Media Player or VLC.
