In my experience, the security of a product is due to the programmer and 
not the language.  The language will only make it more or less prone to 
software flaws.  Of which a secruity flaw is just an exploitable 
software flaw.  Do your error checking and put in place *many* checks 
and balances and it'll all be fine.
