I have a relative programming in IT. Sometimes companies get away with back door hacks to force/botch compatibility/installers, layers of hardware access where there should be none.

This could be tolerated/unnoticed in applications for several years.
They get the warnings and some time down the line changes are made in the operating system for security and these operations no longer work.

As consumers of these products where the developer may have used hacks to get their product to work in a non secure environment we are most likely completely unaware of those shenanigans.

Microsoft should tell us when they remove these dodgy app's, and briefly explain why it had to be done. Then the tin foil hat guys can get back to Lizard men and illuminati.
