heartbleed

I read a quote in the comments of an article on the Heartbleed bug: "I am starting to think that no matter how smart you are, you are not smart enough to code in C."  It made me think of, and appreciate, the folks that make LabVIEW.

 

The blog post - http://www.goodmath.org/blog/2014/04/08/the-heartbleed-bug/

 

The whole comment:

 

Spoiler

This is the third serious flaw in security software in the last two months (Apple and GNU TLS are the others).

All of them occurred in code written in C and the cause of the defect was due to a known common failure mode of C programming.

I am starting to think that no matter how smart you are, you are not smart enough to code in C.
