This box is in our company's DMZ. All system are audited by a external

updating these apps on a 10.0 system that was never set up for development

I've seen these kind of "audits" too. They are usually a scam by your credit
clearing company.

One of these audit companies told on of our customers they were
running old smtp software and had to update. But he was actually running the
latest versions.

He just looked at his logs and firewalled the two netblocks the audit company
was using for their tests. Problem solved.
