    Like any other software, Kubernetes also has bugs and issues. And from time to time, there might be a high severity bug that calls for a CVE. Hence, it's an excellent idea to keep the Kubernetes version up to date on the server and the CLI client. You can check the Kubernetes security and disclosure information website to see if there are known security vulnerabilities for your Kubernetes version. If you are using a managed PaaS, it should be pretty easy to upgrade, and for on-prem installations, there are tools like kOps, kubeadm, and so on, that makes it easy to upgrade clusters.
