Fundamental design

It is technically correct that "math is hard". That does not mean that you just ignore it. You have to design your systems _from the start_ with security as a primary concern, or you will never get it right. (Flash, you know I'm talking about you. Also, zero-terminated strings...)

Securing a complex system after the fact is not hard, it is a fool's errand. We dump on M$ with respect to security because they insist on being that fool.
