Okay, I'll bite.

>From time to time there are bugs found in the software which CentOS
ships. These bugs can lead your code to crash, your machine to be denied
of service as the process which has the bug takes up all system
ressources or even can lead to others being able to run code on your
system (which some bugs being able to do so as root).

Security updates fix those flaws in the Software which CentOS ships, so
you are advised to install those.
