Is this an issue in ASP.NET or is it some cryptographic vulnerability?

This is a vulnerability in how ASP.NET uses cryptography in some circumstances that enables side-channel leaks through error responses.  The current ASP.NET use of encryption padding provides information in error responses that can be used by a malicious party.  We will be fixing this vulnerability in the security update.

Does this affect both ASP.NET Web Forms and ASP.NET MVC?

Yes – the publicly disclosed exploit can be used against all types of ASP.NET Applications (including both Web Forms and MVC).
