We (in my day job) see the same security issues for Joomla based sites 
when modules are used to extend core functionality. Site 
developers/owners are quick to extend functionality by installing 
additional plugins but then don't want the responsibility of maintaining 
multiple packages/plugins on the server. It just adds a further layer of 
complexity as any plugins need to also be separately monitored (and 
maintained) for security updates.
