Railo Contains Unpatched Security Vulnerabilites Fixed in Lucee
The Railo project has not released an update in over a year. The source code for Railo has been forked into a new project called Lucee. There have been several security vulnerabilities fixed in Lucee that also existed in Railo, but remain unpatched in Railo. Because of this we do not recommend using Railo at this time, upgrade to Lucee instead.
