10 years of SQL Injection

It has been 10 years since the publishing of the first SQL Injection research paper and yet, today we are seeing more devastating exploitation of the SQL Injection attack than ever before. Companies data and networks are being broken open through this simple attack that floats right through the firewall on port 80 or 443 and opens up the soft internal networks of many organisations.

Take a look at our introduction to SQL Injection page if you are after some more information about this type of attack, alternatively if you would like to test your web site for SQL Injection head over to the SQL injection testing page.

This presentation highlights the history and the major breaches that have taken place over the past 10 years, did I miss any big ones?
