This discovered vulnerabilities are real, but I can't help but wonder
how much of this statement from Homeland Security is retaliatory for
Apple's stand against the FBI. DHS has rarely issued such a strongly
worded statement for other end of life software with known vulnerabilities.

What Apple should do in response just to annoy DHS and the FBI is patch
Quicktime for Windows.
