    Hi All,

    NSA just published Software Memory Safety

    NSA recommends using a memory-safe language when possible. While the use of added protections to non-memory-safe languages and the use of memory-safe languages do not provide absolute protection against exploitable memory issues, they do provide considerable protection. Therefore, the overarching software community across the private sector, academia, and the U.S. Government have begun initiatives to drive the culture of software development toward utilizing memory-safe languages.
