Data leaks online hit the headlines virtually every day. For numerous firms and private bodies, we learn about them and we even hear about them in conjunction with the protection of government databases. The SQL Injection flaw is a frequent cause of these kinds of data breaches, and can be quickly identified automatically with a web vulnerability scanner.
Even though the security vulnerability of SQL Injection has been around for almost as long as the Internet itself, and has always been classified on the OWASP Top Ten list as the most important vulnerability, it remains a concern. While it is easily recognizable to developers, if you are vigilant in checking the web apps for bugs and security holes, it may be challenging to detect. One way to do that is to use Netsparker’s top-rated SQL injection scanner.
With the increase in the use of web applications and the move to the cloud of confidential data and business processes, further opportunities have arisen for hackers looking to create havoc. Modern web apps are very complicated, and they have exploitable vulnerabilities more frequently than not, even though they operate on SSL (HTTPS). Reports reveal that over 70% of websites have any flaw that can be easily abused by hackers-do not let yours be one of them.
For early detection of SQL Injection, Cross-site Scripting (XSS) and other vulnerabilities and misconfigurations in your web applications and web servers, use the Netsparker online SQL injection security scanner.
What are the dangers of SQL Injection attacks?
Hackers inject malicious code into an existing SQL assertion while performing a SQL injection attack. What this means is that a database server is running the modified statement, which is used to manipulate the connected database data and initiate a response. Depending on how the rights are installed, these can give the hacker the right to review, erase, edit and add data in the database. In the worst case, the entire domain and web server may therefore theoretically be taken over by an attacker. When you aren’t looking, this will all happen easily. And consumer trust will easily erode, as we’ve seen in a variety of high-profile cases.
You will remain ahead of risks by using the Netsparker web application scanner.
Prompt detection of web security problems and bugs is essential for an efficient remediation method. It is time intensive and wasteful to manually search for each potential vulnerability. With only a few keystrokes, Netsparker’s simple-to-use web server security scanner provides automatic scans of thousands of websites. In addition, our unique Proof-Based ScanningTM offers evidence of manipulation of the vulnerabilities found, thus ensuring that they are not false positives. This helps you, without the need for manual testing, to move on to remediation.
When Netsparker detects vulnerability flaws, in a scan report, it shows the details so that it can be viewed from a simplified dashboard that you can share with peers. The dashboard also helps you to produce extensive reports for both client and internal use.
