Could You Be More Vague, Please?

I love security audits. You get back a lovely report of all the problems with your system. Unfortunately, the lovely report isn't always that clear. For instance:

Security Auditor: "installed version of Java out of date."

Me: "Ok, which Java is out of date?"

Security Auditor: "???"

Me: Ok, if I do a quick audit of my system, I find like six versions of Java installed. One is at the revision level you're telling me to update to; one is above that revision level and the other four is below.

Securtiy Auditor: "???"

Me: (stalks off in a mixture of bemusement and disgust)
