Cross Site Scripting Attacks and Protecting ASP.NET Apps
What is a Cross Site Scripting (XSS) Attack ? A Cross Site Scripting (XSS) Attack is where a hacker injects some client side script to a site by way of user input the site provides. This type of attacks can be used for malicious activities like hijacking cookies, or another user's session information.

New Place...
Today the place I work at changed its location. Now our new office building, located at Sir James Peiris Mawatha has five floors. Pretty cool place compared to the place we've worked from before.

Although it is still a very basic system with a relatively limited ......

Superstars or Super Fakes ???
Sirasa the popular local TV channel is having a reality TV show called Sirasa Super Star, which is a carbon copy of the popular show American Idol. I thought of writing a blog about this because it has come to the final stages of this show and everybody is so much interested in it. I have to admit I have also sent a couple of SMSs for the guy i'm rooting for. Now there are only four people left in the competition. Last week a guy everybody was thinking would win the competition was eliminated (much ......
