My Hosting company had applied a security update has been applied to the wev server that has affected my ASP.NET 2.0 code. They are telling me that "inorder to  my  DLLs will need to be modified to use the AllowPartiallyTrustedCallersAttribute class and republished.


They have provided me with the following link for more details on this attribute.
http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.security.allowpartiallytrustedcallersattribute(VS.80).aspx 


Can any one advice what exactly  i need to do get this working at my end.

Hi,

Allowing partially trusted callers on all of your code is a huge security risk. You should only use it with caution, and if absolutely necessary....and if you're sure your code is secure enough and has been through a thorough review...! Have they explained to you exactly WHY this is now necessary??

If I were you, I would seriously consider getting a new hosting company...!!

Some info on partial trust code / environments and risks here:

http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-gb/library/ms182297(VS.80).aspx

(see section on APCTA - Allow Partially Trusted Callers Attribute)
http://channel9.msdn.com/wiki/default.aspx/SecurityWiki.NETFramework2SecurityChecklist

It sounds like they don't really understand what they're a) doing or b) asking of you. If you DO understand all of the risks and everything else and want to go ahead anyway, what you need to do is add the attribute, above your namespace declaration and below your using statements. It's it the System.Security namespace so you'll need that too..

....
using System.Security;

[assembly:AllowPartiallyTrustedCallers]
.....

Hope that helps...
