Security is all about trust. If you install pgp in debian you are
trusting package maintainers, package server administrators, whoever
most recently patched pgp code, the debian OS, the hardware that your
computer is running and the other applications running on your OS.
Most people don't want to take the time to learn how to use a
complicated system like pgp (and say what you will but PGP is a huge
pain for most people to use on a daily basis). Most people would very
much like to trust a third party to encrypt on their behalf. The
problem is that most of those third parties are not actually very
reliable when it comes down to it.
