TOP VULNERABILITY THIS WEEK: Apple Deprecates QuickTime for Windows;

Zero-day Arbitrary Code Execution Vulnerability Disclosed


NOTABLE RECENT SECURITY ISSUES SELECTED BY THE TALOS SECURITY INTELLIGENCE AND RESEARCH GROUP

Title: Apple Deprecates QuickTime for Windows; Zero-day Arbitrary Code
Execution Vulnerability Disclosed
Description: The Zero Day Initiative has published an advisory for Apple
QuickTime for Windows, warning users of a heap corruption flaw that
could result in arbitrary code execution. Apple has stated that they
will not be patching the security vulnerability in QuickTime for Windows
and will no longer support the product, thereby depreciating the
product. Users are advised to immediately uninstall QuickTime for
Windows due to the fact it will no longer be supported and increases the
risk of compromise.
