The Dangers of SQL Injection Attacks

From November 2017 – March 2019, 65% of web application attacks worldwide used SQL injection (SQLi). So it’s no surprise that injection attacks were named as the number one threat to web applications by the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP).
Why are SQLi attacks so frequent?
  • Web forms that use SQL queries to retrieve data are very common, from login pages to search queries, online order forms, and more.
  • These web forms are often connected to databases with potentially valuable information such as personal data and financial records
  • By targeting web forms, attackers can bypass other types of security, such as firewalls and endpoint defenses
  • The knowledge needed to conduct an injection attack is readily available online.
Attackers use SQLi to extract data, such as passwords and credit card information. They can add, modify, or delete records in the database, perform database operations such as changing credentials or dropping entire tables, and more. Any database that uses Structured Query Language (SQL) is vulnerable to SQLi, including Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle, MySQL, PostgreSQL, and MongoDB.

How Can You Prevent SQL Injection Attacks? 

A SQL injection attack typically involves supplying malicious data in form fields. This data changes the expected behavior of the underlying SQL query. Refer to our blog article on SQL injection for examples. Fortunately, there are several strategies available to you that will defend against SQL injection attacks.

 

sql injection

Avoid constructing
dynamic queries

… with user input. Instead, use prepared statements with parameterized queries (bound variables). Prepared statements are one of the primary lines of defense against SQL injection. Refer to the OWASP Cheat Sheet for examples of prepared statements and language-specific recommendations.

sql injection

Use stored
procedures

… and call them using canonical syntax. When coded correctly, stored procedures provide a similar effect to using parameterized queries. However, a stored procedure that uses a dynamically constructed SQL string can still be vulnerable to SQL injection.

sql injection

Sanitize
user data

… by removing special characters and reserved words. Also use field validation to ensure that data contains only expected inputs such as numbers, email addresses, etc. This strategy prevents only the simplest attacks. You must also apply strategies such as prepared statements.

 

suppress data base messages

Suppress database
error messages

… to avoid revealing details that an attacker can exploit. Use generic error messages instead.

sql injection

Limit application
user permissions

… to the minimum necessary for a particular task, following the principle of least privilege.

Use a SAST
solution

… such as Kiuwan Code Security to scan your source code for SQL injection flaws.
