Open your eyes: mozilla-plugin-vlc

> recently the biggest german speaking it site http://www.heise.de/newsticker/Wieder-Luecke-in-VLC-media-player--/meldung/119685 said it is better to use another player because of all the security holes in the recent times and for several years they recommended vlc because it is safer than the others. systematically test for security problems!

Well the other way at looking at the situation is that people cares
enough to report the problems and people (well, mainly Rémi) cares
enough to publish fixed version and advisories.

We could also choose to send such report to /dev/null and maybe people
would think that vlc is more secure.
