Bash/Shellshock kinda proves that premise incorrect, although it's 
pretty much the worst-case example, but still...  ;)

Announced in 2014, it goes back to September 1989 (according to a 
wikipedia article, so I'm not sure about that date's accuracy).



It could be argued that the above CVE results are either under-reported 
(closed-source), or over-reported (open-source). Or vice-versa ;)
