On a small vacation in Nevada where it was hotter than H3LL!
I think these recent trends demonstrate how difficult it is to write code.
Coding isn't difficult nor is writing secure code.
There is simply a discipline and protocol that needs to be followed to make sure that all the code you write is as secure as possible, requiring coding standards, code review, vulnerability testing, so on and so forth.
I can't say anything about Apple's coding standards because I've never seen them personally, but if they have them, and I assume they do, things like this will point out gaping holes in their standard practices and procedures and they'll plug that hole in the future.
Then again, Microsoft, a much bigger company, continues to produce "secure code" with more holes than Swiss Cheese so don't hold your breath.
