CSRF is an attack which forces an end user to execute unwanted actions on a web application in which he/she is currently authenticated. With a little help of social engineering (like sending a link via email/chat), an attacker may trick the users of a web application into executing actions of the attacker’s choosing. A successful CSRF exploit can compromise end user data and operation in case of normal user. If the targeted end user is the administrator account, this can compromise the entire web application.

Broadcasting a message from SignalR hub is pretty straight forward, but sometimes you may need to do the same from outside the hub, like from MVC controller or a Web Page.

.Net Team Foundation Server Version Control Visual Studio
In the recent project I was using few nuget packages. And I was using TFS. Committing these packages into TFS was increasing the size of the repository.
