You must be shitting me..  C does have its inherent flaws but that doesn't
mean that there cannot be a secure application written in C.  This statement
represents FUD at its highest level.

C is designed to allow the programmer a high level of functionality and
freedom.  If he/she is laize-faire in his/her coding practices, that is an
issue with the programmer, not the language.
