A major security flaw in ASP.NET was announced on Friday — one that affects all versions and can allow an attacker to see ViewState and web.config data in clear text.

As such, everyone who has made an ASP.NET Web site should take this threat very seriously.

Microsoft is putting together a patch. Until then, they suggest a workaround of turning on customErrors, and having it point to a single error file.

Thanks! I've made it a sticky until a more permanent fix is issued by Microsoft.
