SQL Injections

In this article, I would like to describe one of the most dangerous and sophisticated ways of hacking databases based on the implementation of arbitrary SQL-code into the database queries.

The most common cause for such an attack is the incorrect input data processing being passed to SQL queries or database APIs. Nowadays, it’s likely that you…

Recently, I was asked the same question by a customer who wanted a real answer. Since I didn’t have the…

So if this is the case, what should your concerns be as you move applications (one by…

This is possible using a breakthrough idea called the…
