According to Apple's security support document for the new Windows version of iTunes, it includes fixes for AppleGraphicsControl, ImageIO, Mobile Device Service, WebKit, and more.

Apple did not mention that the exploits were found in the wild, but iTunes for Windows users should still update to the latest version when possible. There are no other outward-facing changes, with iTunes 12.12.4 focusing on under-the-hood improvements.

iTunes for Windows can be downloaded from the Microsoft Store or from Apple's website.

To anyone still using the flaming pile of garbage that is iTunes on windows, do yourself a favor and use Cider ('https://cider.sh/') instead.
It doesn't support uploading and matching your own tracks, or local library management, both of which are key features of iTunes (and the Music app on macOS). Third-party media managers are useless to those who want everything (Apple Music / Uploaded / Matched) in the iOS Music app.

They've been working on Apple Music for Windows... wonder what's taking so long? I mean, Apple's TV app is on Windows and Xbox.
No one is at the office.
