User.Identity.Name swaps with other logged in users
I seem to be having a problem with User.Identity.Name, never given me any problems in the past, however, i've just put a site live and for some reason, every now and then the value of Name changes to that of another user logged into the system! However, it's only for one page view! Once you view any page again, the information resets back to the original and correct user (i.e. value in .Name).
The only one bit of information i could see on google about this related to worker processes recycling.Is this possible? Could the worker process recycling end up with users being confused?

Hi, How secure passing user credentials like user name, password values in query string to httphandler like login.ashx?uid=xxx&pwd=yyy Surendra SurendraIf this helps mark it as answer
I believe it's very insecure. Anyone who is smart enough can get the credentials from the querystring directly.Thanks,MaxLet Me Google That For You!

I have tried to use HttpContext.Current.User.Identity.Name to get window user account. However, from debugger, for a long time ago I saw my window user name. But now, I did not see my window user name (from debugger) with the same code and same function call.

Thanks a lot

I'm writing my first custom module. Just as an experimental project I would just display information about the currently logged in user.
I can get the User Id, but I don't know where to get the rest of the information. How do I get this?
Just create a new UserController to get the information about one user via the method GetUser(PortalId, UserId) and store it into a UserInfo. Then you can get the rest of the information from this UserInfo
Dim myUser As New UserInfo
Dim myUserController As New UserController
