.net framework inherently unsecure? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Why do most of the important or critical windows updates always have something to do with security issues in the .net framework? Is the .net framework inherently insecure?

  • No offense intended, but isn't this a bit like the reporter who asked a political candidate "Have you stopped beating your wife?"? Neither yes nor no works well.

    My short answer to your question is no.

    A bit longer response: Is A/V and anti-malware software inherently flawed because it is constantly updated to deal with new threats? Obviously, no.

    The .NET CLR mission is to provide a secure managed environment for software execution. Personally, I would be more concerned if it were not frequently updated.
