Vulnerability: Unchecked buffer in ASP.NET

Microsoft has warned an unchecked buffer in its ASP.NET framework could provoke a denial of service attack, and potentially allow an attacker to run the code of their choice.

Customers operating web servers running ASP.NET applications may be affected. ASP.NET applications using StateServer mode that do not use cookies however, are not vulnerable.
