Let me put it this way: is there *anything* other than an air gap between
this system and the Internet? If not, you *NEED* to file a report with
your manager(s), and get at *least* a return receipt - a *signed* by them
piece of paper would be a lot better - stating that the failure to update
to 5.10 is, in your professional opinion a very serious security risk, and
not doing so opens the gateway wide to a major security breach, and that
you have explained this to them, and they understand the risks.

Then point them to somewhere like, say, <http://krebsonsecurity.com/> and
have them read about the Sally Beauty breach, and, scrolling down the
Target breach, and all the other breaches, and the costs to the companies
involved of those breaches.

You really do need to pound this into their heads.
