This only a windows issue in that any security updates to XP are deprecated and QuickTime for Windows won't be patched for an already vulnerable system.Thus, you have Apple recommending removal for optimal security. This means any current system working system will work but will be vulnerable. [...]

Actually, digital content has a much better potential for persistence than paper because of the ease with which it can be copied and transmitted. Many copies in the hands or vaults of many people distributed across the globe can assure continued availability of a digital file. [...]

The point is Quicktime, unlike papyrus and its tools/technology making
it useful, is a proprietary technology subject to the decisions of its
owners. If its owner (Apple) chooses not to support it on any or all
platforms then everyone who has availed themselves of it for whatever [...]

Hm. I would say profit has a lot to do with it: Whereas the old (papyrus)

Not to get too off topic on this but this description of the situation is very inaccurate.

The medium of papyrus (and ink) doesn’t require any further tools to read the results except for knowledge of what the characters/symbols mean where as any technology encoding expression in electronics whether it’s in transit or on somewhat permanent material (i.e., disks or silicon) requires tools which themselves are made up of an encoding.  These tools were never meant to be permanent.  Profit or no profit has nothing to do with it.

Papyrus was/is not proprietary and its makers were not concerned with
profit. In spite of anything anyone has said or done, to my knowledge,
Apple (nor any of its profit-driven peers) has never made "preserving
human culture" a priority when it comes to its (their) business decisions. [...]

Something is not quite right in the world when we can still read papyrus rolls that are thousands of years old but we cannot see a ten year old QuickTime VR movie. Is our culture now that disposable? Will those who will live in the far future not even know much, if anything, about us? [...]

Do you have a link to the Windows download for AV Foundation?    I wonder about the report though. The problems were found last November, and reported to Apple. In January Apple updated the Windows QuickTime to 7.7.9, to fix what reads like exactly the same issue. [...]

Should anyone from Apple deign to comment on this, I’d appreciate hearing whether these or other vulnerabilities apply to QuickTime Player 7 and QuickTime Player 7 Pro for MacOS. Neither of these have been upgraded since 2010.

Dear friends, 
 http://blog.trendmicro.com/urgent-call-action-uninstall-quicktime-windows-today/ 
 No more security updates, and no fixes for two newly discovered vulnerabilities. 
 The vulnerabilities affect QuickTime Player, not codecs (etc.)   Get the word out. I expect some pain. [...]

The lack of support doesn’t affect anyone, but the government telling users to uninstall QuickTime will affect application creators. At the moment someone could make a product that uses videos that they know will play on any system that has QuickTime. [...]

How does this lack of support affect Windows video & animation users?

Can anyone say anything about this situation?:

I doubt you can say much, but if you replied with “yes, we just released a patch”, that would be nice!
