Tips to prevent rising danger from SQL injection attacks

Here you can learn more about how ethical hacking tools can help detect vulnerabilities before they are exploited and how to perform automated tests for all vulnerabilities, including SQL injections, to stop attacks before they start. New defenses for automated SQL injection attacks For quite some time now hackers have used SQL injection attack methods to quickly find and exploit website vulnerabilities and effectively spread malware. In order to prevent SQL injections, enterprise information security teams must go above and beyond the old SQL defense of testing and patching Web application code. Organizations must not only build defenses and practice secure coding best practices, but also develop an in-depth understanding of how SQL injection attacks work and how the threat has evolved -- the earlier SQL injection attacks didn't have the vulnerability detection capabilities of contemporary attacks -- as well as learn how to find, isolate and address webpages infected with malware on a website.

Blind SQL injection attacks explained

For many, the only solution is to implement a patch management system that removes the manual tasks, which often fall through the cracks. While the above best practices are a good start, there are other practices that should be considered regrettably those other practices may incur additional costs, but are ultimately worthwhile in the long run, if they prevent a breach from occurring: Implement monitoring tools: Monitoring access activity at the application level can quickly give an indication that an attack is occurring. Simple clues, such as an increase in errors, or an increase in activity can be used to warn administrators of an attack in progress. Implement filtering tools: Real time security applications can work hand in hand with monitoring systems to block attacks as they occur, by filtering the suspect traffic and denying access to the database.

Fortunately, the electric car maker addressed the security hole shortly after being notified of its existence. Initially, the expert only found some cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities on Teslas website. However, after a while, he found the SQL injection bug in the Tesla Motors design studio, which allows customers to customize their car before placing an order. The flaw plagued a URL shortener that can be used by customers to share the configuration theyve created with others.
