Automatic Update QuickTime Does Not Work On Windows 10

There is a problem with the automatic update feature of QuickTime on Windows 8 and 10, which indicates that the updater users up-to-date, even though there is a new version available. In August released QuickTime 7.7.8 in which multiple critical vulnerabilities were patched.

Through the nine vulnerabilities could allow an attacker to crash the progam or arbitrary code on the computer can perform, such as installing malware. The opening of a malicious media file would be sufficient in this case.

According to Alton Blom this is probably because QuickTime is not automatically on Windows 8 and 10 installs a new version, while this is the case with other Windows versions. Blom approached Apple. The company informed him that QuickTime 7.7.8 for Windows 7 and Vista is designed. When Apple this version also automatically on Windows 8 and will roll out later is unknown. Users can as a temporary solution to the latest version from the Apple website to download. Although this is in accordance with Blom initially did not work, the version offered would now be able to be installed without difficulty.
