Parent article: Local root exploit in NVidia driver
The open source programs have more security advisory because people check the sources and send bug report. It is rare to found an exploit before upstream fix bugs. In closed source you will have only the later category.
Performance is not a valid reason to qualify "best driver". Is is simpler to ignore some races and some cases to gain a lot of performance, but at the end is not correct on some cases, then you will have some crash or lock every day/week/month/year? I prefer "safe" over "preformance"
