2.3 Which Applications Are and Are Not Secure?
Although the base installation is considered to be secure 2 the applications in the ports tree aren’t generally considered to meet this standard. No thorough code audits of the applications in the ports tree are usually done by the OpenBSD team. Ports are, however, installed in such a way to help avoid most potential problems, and security problems sometimes do get detected and ﬁxed in the porting process. Due to the large number of total ports, this cannot be said for the whole ports tree.
