You are quite naive. All applications has some security risk but is not so discussed in public
Last "large" bug in JAVA was fixed in build 11 (Java 7 affected only). Because JAVA/Oracle is a well known app/company so there is a big pressure to fix bugs immediately.
I am sure you have one or two apps installed which is bigger security risk than anything else but it is not discussed widely and because it is from small company or not well known application so nobody talk about, nobody is fixing it but be sure the underground knows them
Nothing is perfect...
