On PHPClasses.org today they've posted their latest "Lately in PHP" podcast - episode 21, "Is PHP Source Quality really Good or is it still Insecure?".

A study from Coverity claims that the source code of Open Source projects such as PHP has a low defect rate. Meanwhile, a few weeks ago, the security expert Stefan Esser claims that PHP source security bug prevention has a lot to be desired because PHP core developers do not have the habit of using source code auditing tools to prevent security bugs. The matter of the PHP source code quality and security bug prevention was one of the main topics discussed by Manuel Lemos and Ernani Joppert in episode 21 of the Lately in PHP podcast.
