-ASP.NET Security Issue and Guidance

This what i got from microsoft!

Dear ASP.NET Customer,

This alert is to advise you of the availability of a web page that
discusses an investigation Microsoft is currently conducting into
public reports of a security vulnerability in ASP.NET. A malicious
user could provide a specially-formed URL that could result in the
unintended serving of secured content.

This alert is also to advise you of the availability of a new
Microsoft Knowledge Base article: 887459. This article contains
prescriptive guidance with steps customers can implement on their
ASP.NET applications to help protect against a wide variety of
malformed URL attacks.

Microsoft is providing this prescriptive guidance in order to inform
customers as quickly as possible about the vulnerability and
information on how to prevent an attack. Microsoft is actively
investigating this issue and plans to release additional guidance
and a security update to remedy the issue as soon as possible.
The Microsoft Knowledge Base article can be viewed here:
