This happens with all software - and is not a trait of KDE alone. This,
I believe, gives Free and Open-source Software ("F/OSS") one of its
major advantages over proprietary alternatives: The entire world, in
theory, has access to peruse through and fix things in the source code -
instead of one company or a subset of people therein. Security issues
are thus found and fixed in a more timely and correct fashion.
