.NET SQL Injection

.NET SQL injection remains a critical risk.

SQL injection in .NET continues to be one of the most prevalent threats to websites and applications. A .NET SQL injection is a security weakness in a .NET application that lets hackers take control of the software’s database by tricking the application into sending unauthorized SQL commands.

.NET SQL injection is made possible by an application that uses untrusted data from a web form field, for example, as part of a database query. When hackers find this vulnerability, they can easily include their own SQL commands in the query, which is then executed by the database. As a result, hackers may be able to access or delete data, change application behavior, access confidential credentials, and worse.

While initiating a .NET SQL injection is relatively simple, preventing SQL injection .NET attacks is easy as well – if you have the proper application security and testing technologies in place throughout your agile SDLC. That’s where Veracode can help.

Veracode technologies for preventing .NET SQL injection.

Veracode includes SQL injection scanner technology in several highly scalable testing services, all unified on a single platform.

  • Veracode Static Analysis scans compiled binaries rather than source code to identify .NET SQL injection flaws in the software you write, buy or assemble.
  • Veracode Web Application Scanning finds vulnerabilities in applications already in production, performing lightweight, production-safe scans as well as deep scans to find .NET SQL injection flaws in public-facing applications.
