ASP.NET Vulnerability

If you haven't heard already there is a security problem with all versions of ASP.NET (yes...including MVC) which allows attackers to read/request protected files, like the Web.Config.

In order to protect these files you'll need to install the patch that is appropriate to your OS and .NET version. Click here for that patch.

Version 1.1 is Available

I just wanted to post a big thank you to several readers who helped with the 1.1 of PDF. David Jenkins (who's posted more to this forum than I have!), Greg Heath, Alexander DiMauri, John CrankShaw,Robert Dzikowski, and Dave Mateer.

Thanks to yours and others feedback the new version now has a downloadable Visual Studio solution file per chapter under /code/chapter_name/solution to let you check your answers against mine.

Now onto MVC 3.0 changes... :)

Just finished an interview with InfoQ on my book.

As part of the interview the prags released an exclusive excerpt of chapter 9 - Integrating with Controllers that you can download off InfoQ. If you're trying to plug-in Windsor Container with ASP.NET MVC that chapter will show you how to do it.
