Sure it's a Beta, but its a public Beta. If you ask then entire world to help do your QA for you, then you can expect the bugs found to be known to the entire world. And Beta also implies that it has been through the Alpha stage and is very close to production ready code. Considering that the buffer overflow is the security bug celebrity of the year I would expect those to be found in the Alpha.
