Not sure if subby is trollin or not, but open source and security are known to be a great combo.  Many eyes on the process and code help find errors

Which isn't really useful if the people with the eyes all assume the other people are watching the code. Which is why stuff like the heartbleed bug in OpenSSL existed for 2 years after being introduced.

Which is why I said "great" combo, not perfect.  I have more trust and faith in Open source vs Closed source for security still.
