ASP.NET Ajax Not Susceptible To JSON Hijacking Attacks

ASP.NET AJAX Web Methods do not enable HTTP GET requests by default
ASP.NET AJAX 1.0 by default only allows the HTTP POST verb to be used when invoking web methods using JSON, which means you can't inadvertently allow browsers to invoke methods via HTTP GET.
ASP.NET AJAX 1.0 requires a Content-Type header to be set to "application/json" for both GET and POST invocations to AJAX web services. JSON requests that do not contain this header will be rejected by an ASP.NET server. This means you cannot invoke an ASP.NET AJAX web method via a <script src=""> include because browsers do not allow append custom content-type headers when requesting a JavaScript file like this.
