DB Networks, an innovator of adaptive database firewall equipment, today announces the release of “SQL Injection Attack: Detection in a Web Application Environment” is available for download at dbnetworks.com. From it's emergence over a decade ago, SQL injection has proven to be an extremely challenging exploit to eradicate. Clearly developers strive to implement secure code, but that's not always completely possible. Also, fixing deployed code to eliminate SQL injection vulnerabilities can take a significant amount of time and resources. Any such effort would need to be prioritized ahead of projects which drive revenue and new business. In some cases the original application source code may have been developed by a third-party and not even be available for modification.
The white paper provides an overview of how SQL injection works and discusses the various approaches utilized over the years which attempted to mitigate the SQL injection threat. An in-depth discussion of the overall effectiveness of each of these approaches is reviewed. Also discussed is why many traditional approaches have largely failed, leaving SQL injection as the single largest database vulnerability.
