If your language runtime has a bug instead, it's much more likely to be a very indirect one, because now not only do you likely have to cause a specific behavior in the program itself, but that behavior has to trip up the runtime in a way that causes that bug to lead to something bad.

Andy Rubin after the iPhone unveiling:
