Actually bits of KDE have had informal ones. Its on the whole ok because
it tends to make heavy use of C string classes. That makes it slower but
tends to make it 'happen' to be less vulnerable to overruns. The older
KDE had some nasty vulnerabilities in the file manager which have long since
been fixed.
