Possible SQL Injection

Impact: High


Possible SQL Injection refers to a potential vulnerability where input data may be susceptible to SQL injection attacks. SQL injection is a type of attack where malicious SQL queries are inserted into input data, allowing attackers to manipulate the database. Successful exploitation can lead to data theft, modification of database records, unauthorized access, and even control over the entire database management system (DBMS).


To address the possibility of SQL Injection, developers should prioritize the use of prepared statements or parameterized queries instead of concatenating user input into SQL queries directly. If prepared statements are not feasible, ensure proper input validation and sanitization. Additionally, conduct thorough security testing, including penetration testing and code reviews, to identify and remediate potential SQL injection vulnerabilities proactively.
