Justin Cappos, an assistant professor of computer science and engineering at the Polytechnic Institute of NYU-Poly, has long been wary of the security risks inherent in Java, the programming language developed by Sun Microsystems in the 1990s. Referring to the libraries of algorithms, data structures, and commands that are part of every computing language, he said, "In Java, the standard libraries are huge; they involve about a million lines of code. A small problem in any one of those lines can leave Java vulnerable to attack."
