An SQL injection is a technique used by hackers to inject adversary SQL commands to gain unauthorized access and execute administration operations on the database. These attacks have the potential of damaging data-driven applications and web pages. SQL injection attacks enable hackers to gain access to an organization’s servers, networks, and databases and steal data or even change entries.
The different types of SQL injection attacks are:
- Blind SQL injection
- Error-based SQL injection
- Time-based SQL injection
