Overall, it's a complicated subject.

Different distros handle security updates in different ways. Some of
them are better than Guix, some are worse. And whether or not you think
they are better or worse depends on your preferences.

There is not a simple answer to "what is the right thing to do?" in
terms of security updates and advisories.

Guix is a distro run by volunteers, and nobody has volunteered to handle
advisories, nor has anybody offered to fund that work. So, it hasn't
happened yet.
