I believe them as much as I believe the NSA/CIA/FBI/DHS recommendation that I stop using the internet as well. The US Government has a bad track records themselves to think they have good advice is a joke. Maybe when they can secure their own PC platforms from malware and Crackers then maybe we can believe them but as of now I doubt that highly. And FYI Quicktime was update from Jan 8, 2016 so updates haven’t stopped that I can see. And being still used .mov is a Apple format will still be around. Apple does update it but they should first tell Apple about it and it will update it. Failure to inform Apple first would stem from the FBI debacle about the iPhone they so called hacked. Now they are using another means to damage Apple. What a bunch of TROLLs…

The advice comes from US-CERT, the American government agency that monitors internet security.
Funny the agency that monitors internet security can’t even maintain the US labor agency security that got hacked…makes you think twice whom is watching whom…

I hope they also explain how to install something else, like VLC. After all, many users use the QuickTime Player for playing QuickTime files, and will need a replacement.
