High (WordPress) update rate or “security follows function”

After updating my blog software WordPress last week, yesterday another security update was released :/

PRO: There are at least (relative prompt) security updates when security flaws are detected

CON: High update rates are little bit exhausting and will reduce system security in an indirect way: The systems often aren't patched with such high update rates by admins 🙁

It seems considering security issues during development cycle is most academic. Everybody (should) know(s) the security duties, but scarcely anybody is considering.

Just like motto: "security follows function"  I think this is a customer-driven problem. Until customers request / buy more "security-developed" systems the won't get it. I hope this behavior will change in future.
