simple forum with security

I'm thinking of adding a forum to my website.
I see a lot of forums getting hacked lately.
PHP forums seem to be the standard now but are they more secure than a perl forum?
What is the safest solution?
Cost is a factor.

The language shouldn't really dictate the security.

Make sure you pick a forum with a decent number of developers and you can be fairly well assured that fixes will be available quickly.

Although there have been quite a few exploits against phpBB2 it is pretty good and security fixes are usually available quickly.

i've had good luck with Much smaller feature set and foot print than other forums but seems to be more secure.
