Actually this is completely backwards.
Think exactly that you are NOT AS vulnerable as using C or C++ directly.
That it's C/C++ underneath has little importance.
It FAR MORE difficult and FAR LESS common to reach runtime/interpreter bugs that to produce bugs of your own in the higher level language.
>Furthermore, it is quite easy for dynamically typed languages to suffer from very serious security vulnerabilities.
Of a different kind, that doesn't pertain to the current discussion.
