Solution for short-term
Was very easy to fix a large number of ASP.NET sites to protect against this vulnerability. http://weblogs.asp.net/scottgu/archive/2010/09/18/important-asp-net-security-vulnerability.aspx proved to be very useful, simple changes required and easily assures that exploiters can't take advantage of the problem.
Still, a fix is a fix and I'm pleased to see it will be here soon. There must be many web sites out there that are not regularly maintained or the owners don't have the skillset to modify them. A lot easier for your typical small business owner to install a patch on their web server than it is to start modifying their web site.
