In the classic story that we CANNOT do anything right the first time it was announced that a patch for ASP.NET actually doesn’t help security that much at all. Microsoft released a patch that was supposed to resolve security issues for ASP.NET and right after a hacker published a vulnerability on how to create havoc within those servers causing massive Denial of Service (DoS). now when we normally think of DoS we think that someone using massive ammounts of infected computers to simultaniously request information from one source causing the server to crash. well….this is not as cool but infinitely more effective. so basically this patch allows for a HTTP request of ~100kb to consume 100% ….wait can i modify text in here?…..
