SQL injection


Really Dumb



SQL injection
SQL Injection is a type of cyber attack used by hackers to steal personal information from websites. It works by inserting malicious code into a website’s database, which can then be used to access data that is not intended to be shared. For example, let’s say a hacker wanted to access the username and password information of an online store. They could use a SQL injection attack to insert malicious code into the store’s database, which would then be used to access the confidential information. Here’s an analogy to help you understand: SQL injection is like a thief breaking into a bank vault with a fake key. He uses the key to open the vault and steal the money inside. A fun fact about SQL injection is that it was first discovered in 1998. Since then, it has become one of the most common types of cyber attacks, accounting for over 70% of all attacks.
