I have been googling around to know how secure can be ASP code, and I found what follows:

You dont Insert ASP in HTML page, you do the opposite, i.e., you
include the HTML code inside ASP page. The ASP part is never sent to
the browser, it is processed on the server, so its secure if you code
securely and server permissions are properly setup.
- Instead of just letting the ASP code in the HTML pages, we can create some DLLs for example, but a not-to-bad
skilled hacker can get and reverse them.
If the DLL is executing on the server then i dont know how can a
hacker get them, if they are propoerly placed and security permissions
are setup correctly, btw you have to use some scripting language to
call the dll.
So, my question to you, skilled-people :) is: is there a way to get the asp scripts in a page the server does not
send when a client's request arrives? There should be a way to ^perform that, but how tough is it?
The server never sends the ASP code to the client if it is properly configured.
Thanks in advance, folks!
