Researchers at Cornell Uni. and AT&T labs have created a variant of the C programming language to build more secure apps. Eventually they want to build a secure OS immune to glitches like buffer overflows... "US researchers are working on a project that could herald the dawn of a more secure operating system, free of the common glitches that hamper today's offerings.

Based at Cornell University and AT&T Labs, New York, the three-year-old Cyclone project is a variant of the programming language C. It is designed to eliminate common bugs and major programming glitches before the software is even released.

The team behind Cyclone describe it as "a programming language that is as C-like as possible while preventing unsafe behaviour" such as buffer overflows.
