In general, ThemeForest has pretty good guidelines and checks to make sure themes do not have security loopholes.

The reason it's not listed in the repository is because they only list free, open source themes in the repository, not any paid or premium themes.

Thanks, Zac :)

What about downloading free themes from sites found on google. Are they secure, or is it best to only download from ThemeForest or WooThemes? Thank you!
