Hi experts!

a)We want to use the culture info class from .net framework so upon user requesting a page we show him info
depending on the culture, b)or instead user just choses a value from dropdownlist and we show him the page
depending on the culture he chooses.

Which one is safer a or b?

I'm sure it depends on your coding practices... I didn't see anything on the net about exploits for these cultureinfo necessarily...
I don't write .net so I'm not sure, perhaps it's a question better suited for
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Programming_Languages/Dot_Net/ (or one of the many .net forums here)

If you want to move the question, contact community support by posting a question here http://www.experts-exchange.com/Community_Support/ and ask them to refund/move this question. But maybe someone here knows better than I.
