SQL Injection is perhaps one of the most common application layer attack techniques used today, mainly used by malicious users to steal data from organizations. It is a type of attack that takes advantage of improper coding of your web applications that allows a malicious user to inject SQL commands into a form on your website, to allow them to gain access to the data held within your database.
In this video tutorial we will demonstrate what is an SQL injection vulnerability, how a malicious user exploits an SQL Injection to steal credit card numbers and other customer data from your website and also how to fix SQL Injection vulnerabilities using practical examples.
