Last week the US government advised Windows PC users to uninstall QuickTime because cybersecurity firm Trend Micro said it had found two bugs in the program.
The bugs found by Trend Micro could, in theory, allow hackers to take control of a PC by directing QuickTime users to malicious web pages.
Apple hasn't said that it's going to fix the flaws - instead it told The Wall Street Journal that it's just not going to update the software anymore, effectively dropping it from its software line-up.
