C and C++ are reliable workhorses that developers commonly select for new projects, even in the absence of legacy code bases. Still, although the flexibility and performance of C and C++ aren't in question, security has increasingly become an issue. The C and C++ communities have recognized this and have taken steps to improve security at all levels, including improved standards, compiler implementations, and static and runtime analysis tools.
