Sean Coates has posted his opinions on all of the recent talk about the "inherent security flaws" that have voiced that PHP has.

There's been a blip on the PHP blogosphere (think what you will of that word, it's accurate) regarding PHP's "inherent security flaws."

He continues the metaphor, stating that no one is a great driver when they first start - the same with coding. There's always a learning process. He also notes that it's not PHP's responsibility to police this inexperience. Experience comes with time and good security in PHP applications comes with experience...
