Concerning web scripts since I have been using them more I am realizing the ever increasing number of spam bots online. When I check my stats and logs it's frightening, so a webmaster has to be on top of this all the time and as you say update your scripts constantly. I do have one blog I am running wordpress on, but that one I can keep up on and I have made serious security changes in that site to keep it secure.
At least Joomla and WP do release updates and patches and are quick to act if anything happens. Not like E107 who i will no longer allow on servers as a few years ago they got hacked and just ignored their users, we had a client who was using it and this left our server at risk as as a server admin i contacted E107 about this and was told in so many words tough and go away.
but i am no coder or developer, but know a bit about HTML and PHP, so always purchases template and then adapt them for my needs.
