The ALM Forum is happening in Seattle in around 5 weeks from now and I am scheduled to deliver one of the pre-conference workshops.

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

But, you might not be aware of or overlook the security problems that occurs because of trusting your users too much.

even most sensitive areas of your site. In this post, we'll discuss about how you can handle Cross Site Scripting (one of the most common security exploit) in ASP.NET Web apps.
