Many website security problems come from trusting the user too much. Most users of your web application will only do what they have the need to do, a curious or malicious user will often want to push the edges of access. At those edges, security holes often appear in your application. I've written about preventing two common types of vulnerabilities, SQL Injection and Cross Site Request Forgery, in ASP.NET apps before. This article looks at preventing Cross Site Scripting, a third common type of vulnerability in websites.
