Plus, the new version may have bugs, including security ones.
Version upgrades of major pieces of my system, such as the kernel, are too destabilizing for me, so when I need a security fix, I try to find just the security fix and apply it myself. But I've had a rather hard time finding them, particularly for the Linux kernel. There are copious web sites reporting security flaws and pointing you to a version upgrade that fixes it, but they don't usually have the actual fix.
If anyone knows where one can find individual kernel security fixes, please post.
