An anonymous reader writes "Oracle is posting patches for all its products next Tuesday, which include 36 exploits for Java alone and over 140 for all Oracle products currently supported, included over 80 that require no authentication to execute.These patches look to be critical for any administrator. Java 6 users who use equipment or programs that rely on older versions are SOL unless they sign up for a very expensive support contract, as these patches are for Java 7 only."

    This particular "ignorant fool" was one of the first commercial vendors of C++.

    Just because some people may use certain features that make C++ safer doesn't mean that it is safer. Plenty of people think they're so clever that they can invent their own "more efficient/better" systems. And use scanf, for that matter.

    I'm not generally of that ilk myself, but STL did make me itch. The worst features of programming and mathematics combined into one.
