If you are programming web application in C++ then you should definitely move on other technologies/languages.
If you compare C++ and C# as languages then you should be aware that C# (and .Net libraries) has more secure syntax
than C++ (no direct memory handling for one thing). It easier to program with .Net, it supports Web applications and
you don't have to write lots of boilerplate code that is needed in C++.
Of course nothing is perfect and bad programmer can always write bad code (with SQL Injections, XSS etc) and no
language will protect him from stupidity.
Furthermore moving from C++ to C# is trivial because languages are very similar in syntax. As alternative you should
examine Ruby and Ruby on Rails.Very powerful language and Rails gives you good framework for rapid Web application
