Support for Apple QuickTime ended in 2016. Due to this, it is now considered a security risk and is scheduled to be removed from University computers. Apple have released the following information about QuickTime in their Knowledge Base (https://support.apple.com/kb/DL837?locale=en_GB):
“QuickTime 7 for Windows is no longer supported by Apple. New versions of Windows since 2009 have included support for the key media formats, such as H.264 and AAC, that QuickTime 7 enabled. All current Windows web browsers support video without the need for browser plug-ins.”
Unsupported software often has vulnerabilities that can be exploited by hackers and QuickTime is extremely vulnerable to attack.
IT will be remotely removing QuickTime from 228 computers that have it installed from the 10th of February.
If you need to use QuickTime please contact the IT Service Desk to discuss your requirements:
