How SQL injection attacks work?

By prancer_io ·
Compared to other forms of cyber attacks, the SQL injection can be more complex and require some sophisticated coding skills. SQL is a declarative coding language that is specifically used to manage data. Essentially, an SQL attack technique works by inserting malicious code into applications. This changes the way databases respond to queries and allows hackers to gain access to user information, delete and edit code, create administrative rights, and open a more permanent backdoor to the database. SQL injection attacks are a particularly damaging cyberattack that can affect a business both in the short and long term.
