There's a lot to security of most issues with any CGI engine (PHP, Perl,
etc.) are with the scripts rather than the engines themselves.
But one of the most common engine vulnerabilities - buffer overflows -
is apparently not something we LiveCoders need to worry about, at least
when Dr. Raney was maintaining the engine:

Just got the latest SANS newsletter and apparently
I'm not the only one who's dumbfounded by the number
of buffer overflow bugs in server software (Re: my
rant to this list a few months ago suggesting we
charge programmers who write code with these kinds
of bugs in them with criminal negligence, and stating
that you're virtually immune from these kinds of bugs
if you write your software in MetaCard).
