Of interest is that bank is in cahoots with the software company and forcing
you to update. This "third party forcing" is not legal in my jurisdiction and
may not be in yours either. If it is illegal, a short letter to the bank or
to the regulator may be all you need.
It is well known that *things* from undesirable universes are always seeking
an entrance into this one, which is the psychic equivalent of handy for the
buses and closer to the shops.
