So how would normal TYPO3 developers/users know if an extension has been 
removed for security reasons then?
I have looked at the security bulletins at 
But can't find reference to any of the 2 extensions I mentioned.

Why not keep the unsecure extension online too, but with a note saying that 
it has security problems.
That way people will instantly know that this extension should be avoided. 
Specially if not all is listed on
