    Cannonicalization issue in ASP.NET

    Microsoft is currently investigating a reported
    vulnerability in Microsoft ASP.NET. An attacker
    can send specially crafted requests to the server
    and view secured content without providing the
    proper credentials. This reported vulnerability
    exists in ASP.NET and does not affect ASP.

    Their interim "fix" is to add an event handler to
    force real path validation for all requests:

    http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=887459

    Which is certainly not a bad idea but methinks
    another performance/security tradeoff at hand.

    Thanks for the heads-up Daniel...
