Apple, Microsoft and PHP are vulnerable
August 26th, 2008 by Ivo
I recently came across this article:
This article once again demonstrates the cluelessness that some people have regarding what PHP is. First of all, PHP is not a vendor, so "Apple, Microsoft & PHP" does not make much sense. Furthermore, the only reason PHP even is mentioned in this context is that Joomla, Drupal and WordPress appear in the list. So PHP, a programming language, gets blamed for the security flaws that are in these packages.
With the same data, I might conclude that C is more insecure than PHP, after all there are more C-based vendors/product in the list than PHP products.
But they're not just clueless about PHP, they also list Linux as a Vendor in their top 10 list. Linux is an operating system, not a vendor.
Sometimes I wish these reporters would talk to people that know what their talking about before they write such an article.
