Agreed -- I was addressing the larger point of the overall quality level of most PHP code out there. But as mentioned above by jfj, this is hardly the exclusive domain of PHP - libpng had a huge hole[s], and check out the vendor list of products that lib made it into: http://www.kb.cert.org/vuls/id/388984 Yikes!
