so security isn't a C# or java advantage, on the contrary.
Not exactly. In case of C# or Java, these kind of memory-corruption bugs can be only in the virtual machine, in the JIT compiler and in the code generated by the JIT compiler, not in the actual code written by the developers. It's a lot less code to review and make it bugfree, compared to C where any code can overflow a buffer, not just the code in gcc.
