runequester is on a distinguished road
Compiling yourself isn't inherently safer unless you're savvy enough to actually prowl through tons of code. I certainly aren't.

As far as I figure, debian packages are how computers were meant to work
It does serve you well to be at least a bit cautious about what PPA's you add to a system.

Of course, in linux world, the large range of options will help make an exploit harder to succeed. What works on a debian system may not affect something based on RPMs and a Gnome weakness would be pointless in KDE, f.x.
