If you are really worry about security, you should apply the rule in practice in high security agency (military...): only use software that you compîled yourself, from official source files, and after checking the sources for any backdoor or security issues. While usually you can get the source of proprietary sofware (with a non-disclosure agreement and often a lots of money), Open-source software let you do that for free.
That's one major reason that those agencies favor more and more open source.

I am Libre office user on Mac OS. Above all, I really appreciate to you guys' adventure and 
entrepreneurship to develop this kind of useful Open source software that is extremely helpful for 
Mac OS user. Documents written through MS office are always the source of problem to handle based 
on Mac OS. However, after I used your S/W, then it became much easier and I can get rid of burden 
regarding those stuff.
The reason why I write this letter is to ask you about the security of this software, I think since it is open source, so I am worrying about the security and possibility of being attacked by hacker and virus. I am very sensitive toward security and I do not want my documents sent to the hacker later. Can I make myself easy about the concern? And, does this software work independently like MS office and is it Off-line program? or Does it work through cloud service system, API, and Online based system? I wish you will not misunderstand my message, I just want to confirm the structure of the program regarding security that is my priority concern. And, separated from my question, I sincerely respect your effort. Hope to receive your reply. Thanks for your development. Best wishes, Alexander
