SQL Injection

Impact: High


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).


Prevent SQL injection by using 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. Employ whitelists to restrict user input wherever possible.
