Privacy, Security, Encryption "In 2010, exploited Java vulnerabilities outpaced the exploit of Adobe Reader and Acrobat," Landesman, senior security researcher at Cisco, said. "Java was 3.5 times more frequently exploited than were malicious PDFs. That really spells out the need for paying attention to what's making the headlines but also paying attention to the types of things that aren't making the headlines."

Well, if you implemented the JVM in a "safer" language like Java, how the hell would it run ? ;)

Besides, C(++) can be secure, when people know what they're doing with it (e.g. don't use scanf and char* apart for very low-level stuff where they can't do otherwise, think of the "delete" as soon as they've written a "new" somewhere, things like that)
