"applauded Uber for its responsiveness"

Great, a "disruptive" company thriving on giving a fat middle finger to every local country's laws is on the ball when it risks losing money. I suppose there's little surprise there.

What I wonder is : how much of these errors are due to buffer overflow scenarios ? And how many are due to non-sanitized inputs ?

You know, the basic programming errors of last millennium ?
