Hello citadelind

One of the easiest methods to stop SQL injection attacks is to check all incoming text entries. See the following code for an example. It uses C# 4 and ASP .NET, but the general principle applies to any language and framework that uses SQL.

Notice the use of the String extension method. This simply replaces any instance of ' with '' The use of the ' character is a common cause of SQL injection. By trapping replacing the ' character with '', you limit the number of ways a SQL inject attach can occur.

Thanks,

Richard Hughes

ideally use stored procedures to access data and pass data as parameters.  If you build in line SQL, then specify parameters for any user input data.

If you cannot do that, make sure that any user input string used in building a sql string is escaped for the ' character with

MyString.Replace("'", "''")

i.e replace ' with ''  (a single quote is replaced by two single quotes)

I follow ALWAYS these two rules:
1. ALWAYS use parameters for your query's:
Example:
SqlCommand cm = new SqlCommand("INSERT dbo.MyTable (Text) VALUES (@pText)", myConnection);
cm.Parameters.Add("pText", SqlDbType.VarChar, 50).Value = "My user unsafe input";
cm.ExecuteNonQuery();

Open in new window

The SqlCommand class will take care of the security of this input, converting this to a literal.

2. When you display data from your DB to html, ALWAYS encode it by using Server.HtmlEncode("My unsafe user text")
