The United States Computer Emergency Readiness Team has posted an alert regarding security risks in the Windows version of Apple QuickTime.
Corel VideoStudio X8, X7 and older versions include QuickTime as part of their installation. Other products, including Corel VideoStudio X9 and some offered under the Roxio and Pinnacle Studio brands, may also rely on QuickTime for the delivery of some features. Unfortunately, uninstalling QuickTime may impact some products' performance and functionality.
Corel is moving quickly to evaluate which of its products and their functionality may be impacted by the removal of QuickTime from Windows users' systems. We will provide our customers with more information on a product-by-product basis as soon as possible.
Corel would like to assure our users that we are not aware of any exploits of this issue impacting our customers. We would also like to remind all our customers to follow safe internet practices and not open attachments, click on external links, or download files from any source they do not know and trust explicitly. Moreover, it is also a best practice to ensure that your system is running up-to-date anti-virus, firewall, and malware protection software.
Corel takes our users' security seriously and we will provide more information regarding this issue as soon as it is available.
