Hi W.,

live) [EMAIL PROTECTED] wrote and made these points on the subject
of "Buffer overrun vulnerability?":

I  don't  believe  it  is  at  all.  IMHO  being written in Delphi - a
language  which  uses  dynamic  strings  as  part  of  the fundamental
linguistic  basis  and  not fixed sized buffers like C and C++ - would
take it completely away from that kind of issue anyway.

Anyone else got any other views on this?
