DotNet flawed sample code has crippling authentification exploit

Quote:
An open source project focused on OpenID Authentication for the .Net Framework has a flaw that could allow a hacker to take control of user accounts.

The leader of an open source authentication project warned developers last week of flawed sample code that if added into a Web site would open a “serious vulnerability” in implementations of OpenID authentication.

The flaw has since been fixed in the code, but the rub is that the fix must be applied manually because the sample code likely was cut and pasted into Web sites. A patch or update, therefore, is not an option.
