Almost every web application employs a database to store the various kinds of information it needs to operate. The means of accessing information within the database is Structured Query Language (SQL). SQL can be used to read, update, add, and delete information held within the database.
SQL is an interpreted language, and web applications commonly construct SQL statements that incorporate user-supplied data. If this is done in an unsafe way the application maybe vulnerable to SQL injection (SQLi). This flaw is one of the most notorious vulnerabilities to have afflicted web applications. In the most serious cases, SQL injection can enable an anonymous attacker to read and modify all data stored within the database, and even take full control of the server on which the database is running.
