I don't think saying "use safer languages" is a good way to say it. 
It would help conditions significantly if greater care were taken to 
match the choice of programming language to the problem to be solved 
or application to be created. If a language like C is most 
appropriate, then use it, just be sure to take the extra steps needed 
to develop it securely.

The problem is so much the programming languages as it is the way 
they are used.

only be surprising." (Young, Boebert, and Kain)
