Jesus H Christ upon a purple pogo stick!  When I bought my MacBook, she 
ran Snow Leopard 10.6.8, and Xcode was 5.5.1 back then.

After those years, she's now running Yosemite 10.10.2, and Xcode is 6.0.1 
(which I think has been updated).

Don't people check their boxen every so often, vulnerability-wise?  No 
bloody wonder that the malware background noise is increasing...
