Ben, that was far too simple and uninteresting.  Let me help you out 
with a rewrite:

    The build of DP2 you found on our servers was reviewed by the
    US NSA and was found to have insufficient backdoors needed for
    their surveillance of our users' scripting.

    At the request of their space alien overlords, we pulled that
    release and installed tons of intergalactic malware to better
    support their plans to take over the planet, so we can all
    enjoy being enslaved by lizard-lipped aliens working under
    the command of the reincarnated Elvis.
