Removing QuickTime for Windows

New vulnerabilities affecting Apple QuickTime Player for Windows computers have been announced, and Apple will not be patching them as the product is now considered end of life (EOL). As a result, any computers running this software are vulnerable to attacks and present a serious security risk.

ITSS will be removing QuickTime from all campus Windows computers beginning Thursday, 4/21 at 8:00 AM to protect against these vulnerabilities. If users need to view QuickTime media, VLC Media Player is installed on most campus computers and can also be downloaded through the Application Catalog.
