Programmers are copying security flaws into your software, researchers warn - CNET:

Working more as code assemblers than as writers, programmers are sourcing about 80 percent to 90 percent of the code in any given software application from third parties, many experts estimate.

Unless we're talking about third-party libraries (which I just finished lamenting earlier this month), there's no way that's true. Even then, there's no mature, custom codebase with only 20% original code. Gosh, I wish it were that easy. In other words, your WordPress programmer isn't [a programmer, to be clear].

I love the unsourced "many experts" too.
