I guess so, but then texlive has never issued security updates, has it?
I also agree with Taco that security bugs in TeX are mostly not
relevant, while real bugs are.  It's more that distributors want to have
a reputation of fixing security issues promptly (which is in fact
important for server software etc.) and cannot or don't want to
distinguish between important ones and less important ones.
