Apple removes java script support in QuickTime

Back in January I posted about how it would be nice if software vendors would not put in unnecessary extras that it would make their software more secure and our lives easier. Well it seems that Apple has listened to me (since I am on "The List" I'm sure they closely follow my blog). :) Didier Stevens has reported that Apple has actually removed a feature from QuickTime that reduces functionality but increases security. The new version of Quicktime (7.1.5) has removed support for Java Script.

Kudos to Apple for doing the right thing. Maybe soon other vendors will follow suit.

Andy,
This is awesome. Now if we can just get Adobe to follow suit with Adobe Reader. That would be great.
