Cloudbleed: Big web brands 'leaked crypto keys, personal secrets' thanks to Cloudflare bug

Anyway, a proper way to prevent bugs similar like this one from happening is to built a proper automated testing into your software development process.

The proper way is to prevent them from occurring in the first place; use a language which doesn't permit buffer overflows, doesn't have a reliance on pointers where anything could go wrong, as it so often does.

It seems 'we' keep on using languages which allow things to go wrong and are continually surprised when things do go wrong. The lessons are not being learned.
