SQL Injection

SQL injection (SQLi) remains one of the most prevalent threats to web applications, databases, and data integrity in cybersecurity. This attack vector exploits vulnerabilities in an application's software by injecting malicious SQL statements into input fields, leading to unauthorized access and manipulation of database information.
  • SQL Injection attacks constitute 65% of all web application attacks. (Source: Akamai 2020 State of the Internet / Security Report)
  • The average cost of a data breach resulting from an SQL Injection attack is estimated to be over $3 million. (Source: IBM Security Cost of a Data Breach Report 2020)
