I don't believe I said that. But if you want to know my opinion, the C++ language is certainly changing in positive ways but its still not safe and never will be, not for new code and certainly not for existing code. And if you were rewriting old code with the intention of making it safe (i.e. stable, reliable and resistant to exploitation), why not rewrite it in a language with that express purpose?
