MVC.NET (ASP.NET) Security

MVC.NET (ASP.NET) Security

A collegae of mine was running some security checks on the site we are building the other day and found some vulnerabilities. Nothing serious, but still: more than I wanted to be in there. So I went searching on the internet for explanations and solutions.

The second day of the Microsoft DevDays 2010 was a day I didn’t expect much from. I saw the agenda and didn’t have a real feeling for certain titles that I just had to see. Thankfully I met with an old colleague of mine (whose only day on the DevDays it was) and he did, so I just trailed with him and saw some more unexpected great things.
