The above is something I think is right and it is right especially for
security and health related software.

Security-related software is very *precisely* the kind that should not be closed-source proprietary software, because when your security software is proprietary, only the copyright holder has the right to publish and distribute a fix for that piece of software when it turns out to have a vulnerability.

And, of course, on an Internet-connected computer *most* software turns out to be security-related.
