Then the average user obviously doesn't care and doesn't consider what you brought up to be a problem.

That's interesting, because Debian always struck me as being one of the worst examples of design-by-committee.

I just create comfort. I wish you comfort and enjoyment in Life. I believe in Linux.

p.s. You can use ThreadTools at top of page, to mark this as "Solv'd", if you choose.

Hopefully the OP wasn't scared away.

I don't believe there is a secure OS as such. Every day some update to some part of distro's get updated. The update may cover mundane issues to very serious security issues.

Any OS is only as secure as the amount of "best practices" used to protect it. The more you learn and use may determine how secure the system it. Is any linux distro secure by default? Well, maybe a few can be configured by default to be secure. That may be the direction you could consider.
