Dear Apple security
Dear Apple security - firstname.lastname@example.org .. since I am unable to contact you via email and you have not returned my emails I'll try the blog. I've sent you two emails now and no responses at all to my concerns, only an automated email that doesn't help. I even have you listed as a Threatcode bad patching vendor.
I still say the way you want me/us/the world to update your Apple Quicktime is too much. You want me to be an administrator. You want me to install an insecure program to get an installer installed. You ask too much. PLEASE provide a patching system that administrators can use. PLEASE do not make it so hard to patch Quicktime that the average John Q Computer user won't patch.
Please fix this.
Please respond if you are out there.
[NOTE -- THIS IS AN AUTOMATED RESPONSE]
