As was pointed out in our previous post, the root cause of approximately 70% of security vulnerabilities that Microsoft fixes and assigns a CVE (Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures) are due to memory safety issues.
Actually, the C in CVE stands for C.
@meena lol for the C in CVE 😁
@zacchiro i can't find the original source any more, but i think somebody made this for me
@meena that's brilliant! (I hadn't seen it before)
@meena @zacchiro why rust exists XD
@meena @zacchiro oh I didn't see the thread lmao
@robots @zacchiro everything in that article plays directly into Rust's strengths
to be honest, i'm not sure there's weaknesses that rust has that c++ hasn't got too, or where the c++ equivalent is a million times worse
