If Linux is safe, why do they always find things that need security updates
[debian.org] (19 so far for December, 2013 for Debian, which is one of the more stable and secure distros)?
If Windows is safe (which I believe Win7 and Win8 are, relatively speaking), why do they always need security updates? (No link because, really, does anyone need proof of that).
If Mac OS is safe, why do they always need security updates
If hard-wired credit card terminals are safe, why did Target just divulge 40,000,000 customers' credit card information?
Same for Flash, Java, Adobe AIR, Firefox, Chrome and a zillion other things that are constantly being patched for security reasons.
Nothing is *safe* in the sense that it is without risk.
One thing I like about Drupal is there is, in my opinion, more active reporting than many other CMS.
You can't base the safety of an app on the number of security reports and fixes. It's a worthless metric.In other words, answer me this question. Which is safer:
Application A is three years old and has had 30 known security holes discovered and patched
Application B three years old and has had three known security holes discovered and patched
Is A 10x worse than B or 10x better? Based on the information released, you can't say.
