No, that isn't grammatically incorrect.  It may be factually incorrect, or the 
correct statement may be that Mac OS 10.9 Mavericks may be less unsafe than 
prior versions.

I updated to Mavericks about a month ago.  It's annoying, on a number of fronts.  
However, according to a quick check by Naked Security, Apple seems to have 
stopped patching prior versions:
