 Quality software means more secure software

"Common hacker exploits can be fixed with good software process. Things like buffer overflows can be fixed using common code scanning. But we can't solve the more basic software flaw problem with static analysis tools. Operations people don't care about fixing bugs or flaws. If you were a network manager trying to fix broken software, you'd try to protect it with something like an application firewall. On the other hand, a builder will fix the broken stuff by trying to get rid of bugs. Then they will get more sophisticated and go after flaws and try to fix the software life cycle."
