How secure is the CodeIgniter 3.x framework? I have read that people discourage usage of CodeIgniter because it is unsafe. The problem is: These posts are old and is mainly pointed to the 2.x versions or older.
A quote from this page:
I strongly urge you to stay away from CodeIgniter. I'll give you one reason and this is the only reason you'll need: CodeIgniter has no idea how to do security properly. Or it just isn't a priority for them.
Is this still true for the later versions of CodeIgniter? And if so: Is there any alternative that works a lot like CodeIgniter, but more secure?
