Here is an interesting vulnerability that I have come across several times in real CFML code during code reviews, I have spoken about it at conferences but have never written about it. Since it doesn't really have a name, I call it Scope Injection, you'll see why in a minute.

If you are using Railo you will want to make sure you have locked down the uri /railo-context/ - this is Railo's equivilent to ColdFusion's /CFIDE/ directory. It contains the Railo Administrator, as well as some other supporting files and mappings.
