Ivo Jansch mentions an interesting comparison that CNet made on security and levels of vulnerability in a new blog post today. Their article mentions PHP right along side Apple and Microsoft in their list of "most vulnerable software".
This article once again demonstrates the cluelessness that some people have regarding what PHP is. First of all, PHP is not a vendor, so "Apple, Microsoft & PHP" does not make much sense. Furthermore, the only reason PHP even is mentioned in this context is that Joomla, Drupal and Wordpress appear in the list. So PHP, a programming language, gets blamed for the security flaws that are in these packages.
By their logic (applications written in a language on the list means the language is more insecure), they should have marked C as a more insecure language given the ratio of PHP to C software.
