One pitfall of using Scripting languages

It seems Facebook source code leaked the other day. And for those of you who don't know, Facebook uses PHP. Even though the problem was apparently due to a misconfigured server, it nevertheless exposes the problem with interpreted languages in the web world.
Nick Cubrovic (founder of OmniDrive) has a great post on preventing PHP leakage.

May be this is the reason , a number of enterprises still stick with compiled languages like Java on the web.
