Robert Seacord is also the author of Secure Coding in C and C++  (Addison Wesley, 2nd Edition), In his review Mike James said:

This book is an attempt to make C/C++ programmers more aware of just how vulnerable their code is. Most of the exploits are at the C level because its more direct approach to memory use. C++ is often put forward as the way of solving the problems because it packages the way memory is accessed in a way that makes it safer - as long as you stick to the rules.

Giving it a rating of 4.5 (out of 5) he concluded:

This is a very good book and highly recommended as long as you mostly want to know about flaws that arise in C. It doesn't really cover the security implications of working in C++ without dropping down to write some pure C.
