Huge Security Hole in .NET

"Java creator James Gosling this week called Microsoft’s decision to support C and C++ in the common language runtime in .NET one of the "biggest and most offensive mistakes that they could have made". Don Box of Microsoft has responded with a tongue and cheek posting: Huge Security Hole in Solaris and JVM".

As usual War between java and .net...
