Too easy for hackers to exploit if they have the source code. I hope that ex-employee idiot/saboteur at Kaspersky gets jail time.

Can't we write code that isn't hackable? I mean without complex security measures. I remember the days when user input was checked and validated in terms of format before being passed to the program, code handled overflows and dividing by zero etc.. Access was monitored and also validated in code. Can't we go back to coding like that? Writing idiot proof code...
