Secure by Design Alert: Eliminating SQL Injection Vulnerabilities in Software – CISA

0 minutes, 51 seconds Read

CISA and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) released a joint Secure by Design Alert, Eliminating SQL Injection Vulnerabilities in Software. This Alert was crafted in response to a recent, well-publicized exploitation of SQL injection (SQLi) defects in a managed file transfer application that impacted thousands of organizations. Additionally, the Alert highlights the prevalence of this class of vulnerability. 

Despite widespread knowledge and documentation of SQLi vulnerabilities over the past two decades, along with the availability of effective mitigations, software manufacturers continue to develop products with this defect, which puts many customers at risk. Vulnerabilities like SQLi have been considered by others an ‘unforgivable’ vulnerability since at least 2007. Despite this finding, SQL vulnerabilities (such as CWE-89) are still a prevalent class of vulnerability.
