XSS Injection with SQLi (XSSQLi) XSS Injection with SQLi (XSSQLi) Well After our discussion on different types of injection and places you can find SQL injection Vulnerability, an attacker can successfully exploit and SQL injection vulnerability and get access over the database and if he is enough lucky to get access to the File System…
In this section, we’ll explain what SQL injection is, describe some common examples, explain how to find and exploit various kinds of SQL injection vulnerabilities, and summarize how to prevent SQL injection.
What is SQL injection (SQLi)?
SQL injection is a web security vulnerability that allows an attacker to interfere with the queries that an application makes to its database. It generally allows an attacker to view data that they are not normally able to retrieve. This might include data belonging to other users, or any other data that the application itself is able to access. In many cases, an attacker can modify or delete this data, causing persistent changes to the application’s content or behavior.
In some situations, an attacker can escalate an SQL injection attack to compromise the underlying server or other back-end infrastructure, or perform a denial-of-service attack.
