The logical conclusion from this is to move to a language with automatic memory
management. The "top
vulnerability" reports for programs written in C/C++ and most other languages so
different that starting a new
project that processes untrusted data in C/C++ is becoming indefensible.
no, that would mean thow away a lot of code and a hurry rewrite of whatelse
in whatever language doe snot make things secure
We seem to be stuck with C as the lowest common denominator that can
be used from any runtime; long-term we _need_
to move away from that, or Linux will gain the reputation of least-secure OS around.
not really, proven by securityfocus lists and changelogs of many
Fedora apckages which are not in C/C++ a fool will always implement
unsecure software and look at java-applets the last year!
Now, what to move to? I currently don't have see any
language/runtime I could recommend, which is in itself rather
and that is why existing technologies to make binaries more secure should be used
