The Java programing language was implemented in such a way as to limit the amount of possible ways that a program written in Java could be exploited. Unfortunately, all of the protections and safeguards put in place for Java can be circumvented if a program created in Java utilizes internal or external libraries that were created in a separate, insecure language such as C or C++. A secure Java program can then be made insecure and susceptible to even classic vulnerabilities such as stack overflows, string format attacks, and heap overflows and corruption.
