0 day Django exploit in the wild - http://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=872533

Fixed rather quickly but found rather late. One of the reasons is
probably because of the comparatively smaller user base. If Django had
the same number of users as Drupal, I expect a lot more to be visible.

Also, I don't think that merely *using* PHP means that your site is
less secure. That's a tad too simplistic for my tastes. And I'm also
willing to bet that if I did have to use PHP, using something like
Drupal would be a lot more secure than deploying a home brew CMS.

There was a time when I used to maintain my entire website on my local
machine as a bunch of text files using Muse for Emacs. Make edits as I
wanted and then 'publish' the site. Not exactly cutting edge tech. and
not very flexible but I'm guessing that static HTML pages have better
security records than Django and Drupal. :)
