Rust in peace: Memory bugs in C and C++ code cause security issues so Microsoft is considering alternatives once again

Maybe some progress on the hypocrisy front?

I love the MS security people's inconsistencies and will truly miss them in the unlikely event MS starts using safer tools. Here you go:

(1) MS: stop using dodgy tools and unsafe practices! Pros don't do C++ anymore!

(2) MS: unthinkingly, reflexively install every (marginally tested) security update binary blob we vomit forth!

(3) MS; ignore the fact we used C++ to generate the untested dirty hac^H^H^H patch!

Rinse, repeat
