That perhaps is solved with a good static page/FAQ where it is 
pointed out that security is a not a state of being. Security is a 
process. And Geeklog has a long standing process for handling 
exploits as they are discovered. That's one way to deal with it.

The problem with safer is it doesn't mean anything. Safer than what? 
Safer FROM what? Secure has a meaning that does not require clarification.
