SQL Injection

Safeguarding Your Data from SQL Injection Attacks

SQL Injection (SQLi) attacks exploit vulnerabilities in an application’s software by injecting malicious SQL queries. These attacks can manipulate or access the database, leading to data breaches.

How SQL Injection Works:

  1. Exploiting Input Fields: Attackers inject malicious SQL code through input fields.
  2. Bypassing Authentication: Gaining unauthorised access by manipulating SQL queries.
  3. Extracting Data: Retrieving sensitive information from the database.

Protection Tips:

  • Use parameterized queries and prepared statements.
  • Implement input validation and sanitization.
  • Regularly update and patch database management systems.

Ensuring robust input validation can effectively thwart SQL injection attempts.
