A new WhiteHat Security report takes a deeper look into the security of a number of the most popular programming languages including .Net, Java, ColdFusion, ASP and more.

"Deciding which programming language to use is often based on considerations such as what the development team is most familiar with, what will generate code the fastest, or simply what will get the job done," said Jeremiah Grossman, founder and iCEO of WhiteHat Security. "How secure the language might be is simply an afterthought, which is usually too late."
