Many software systems have evolved to include a Web-based component. One of these attacks is SQL injection, which can give attackers unrestricted access to the databases that underlie Web applications and has become increasingly frequent and serious. SQL injection is an attack that occur in the database layer of an application. The vulnerability is present when user input is either incorrectly filtered for string literal escape characters embedded in SQL statements or user input is not strongly typed and thereby unexpectedly executed. SQL Injection is one of the most common application layer attack techniques used today. Here is a POC (Proof of Concept) by Scanning Tool: Web Cruiser-Web SQL-injection attacks exploit weak validation of textual input used to build database queries.
The objective of this project is to prevent SQL injection while injecting queries to database and to make the database secured. The system uses SQL Injection mechanism prevention to keep the data safe and secure from SQL injection attacks.
