The only reason they are patching so quick is 6.0 is crap. Apple has been loosing their quality control since the map fiasco and the they put out 6.0 has been nothing but trouble.
And yes evasi0n and any jailbreak is a security risk. It opens the door. Now anything can run on your iPhone cause the permissions has been bypassed/disabled.
But this also why I bought an iPhone years ago

Then you ask - well WHY NOT for ANDROID? Well because Android is an OS only - not a piece of hardware. Android iOS is a chosen iOS by MANY DIFFERENT companies. Is security breaches happen who do they go after? Samsung? Nokia? Apple is a hardware AND OS company all in one. They can be sued. You can't sue 'Android'. There's no 'android' company - per se. At least not that releases its OWN hardware.

Actually I was steaming mad at Apple for doing so many updates so soon, but now I see that 6.1.1 was just for the 4S, so I'll cut them a little slack about it. But just to reiterate, they left 6.0.1 alone for almost a whole month. But then Jailbreak? Boom, Update, Update, Update.
And yes, Android, even Microsoft Windows for that matter, are OS's only. The Apple OS, iOS, are to be used in tandem with an Apple Device. Even though people do install MACOS onto PC's. But this was Steve Job's pet peeve: He always considered the MACOS to be part of the system just like the Hardware. But even regular MACOS's can be themed and modded.
I think there are more Jailbreakers and Jailbroken iPhones than any demographic can account for. I don't know, about two in five of every iPhone or iPad user I've met has Jailbroken, and even mroe in the last 2 years.

We all accept the risks of installing third party software on our PCs and laptops. We'd never tolerate being sold an OS X system without our having access to root, including the ability to run any process with super-user privileges. Why should we accept Apple's position that, in the specific case of an iDevice, we're too stupid to be trusted with the keys to our own castle? Folks - if you're serious about security, consider hiring some armed guards; post them outside your house and instruct them not to let you in under any circumstances. Your house will be lame and not very useful, but really, really secure.
In the post Steve Jobs era, I can think of only three reasons for Apple to be wanting to kill jailbreaks:
1) To patch legitimate security holes.
2) To prevent software piracy.
3) To ensure a continued 30% share of any software sold for iDevices.
Item 1) really doesn't apply to Evasi0n. If you don't use passcode locks and encrypted backups, you already have a security hole, whether you jailbreak or not.
Item 2) could be addressed independently from the issue of unsigned code execution, but Apple has consistently made no effort to do so because, IMHO, their primary goal is item 3).
