Banking apps: Handy, can grab all your money... and RIDDLED with coding flaws

COBOL Forever!

People trust banks because the back-end language for handling money is, and always will be, COBOL. COBOL is written to be clear and as bug-free as over 50 years of development can make it. Any language that's less than 10 years old and still in development is a guaranteed bug-house. COBOL Forever!!
