Department Of Homeland Security Asks People To Uninstall QuickTime

If you're running Windows, you should probably uninstall QuickTime before you get yelled at by your tech friend — or the U.S. government.
On Thursday, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security recommended Windows users uninstall QuickTime to avoid cyberattacks.
That's because Apple is no longer providing security updates for the video player on Windows, according to the security site Trend Micro. The site flagged vulnerabilities in the software. And without updates, those security issues aren't going anywhere.
