Apple Quick Time exploit


Recommended Posts

So, there's supposedly an exploit to Apple Quick Time that has every one, including the government saying we should immediately uninstall Quick Time.

From what I understand, the exploit relies on Quick Time (V7.3 and higher) playing content that causes malware to be loaded.


I have a number of programs that need to have QT running so I can't really afford to summarily uninstall it.


Fortunately, I and the programs I use don't need to use the external-media playing functions of QT. That, and I've disabled it as a default multi-media player in general.

My question is what are the known workarounds are available until ESET has either protection implemented or a statement regarding protection availability.

To my best knowledge, no real malware has been seen yet to exploit this vulnerability. If I recall correctly, Apple suggests to uninstall QuickTime as a preventive measure.
