SQL injections are common for Hypertext Preprocessor (PHP) applications, usually on Linux servers and with MySQL, and Active Server Page (ASP), Microsoft’s web server technology for creating dynamic, interactive sessions with users. Code Project has a post describes a small, sample code to deal with the vulnerabilities and combat these attacks. It’s available to download.
There’s more help, advice and a demonstration on a webcast from Alien Vault. It’s released it partly because it says SQL injection and Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) attacks affect millions of users and they need Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) solutions to find these vulnerabilities. SIEM collects and correlates data to identify patterns and raise alerts on cyber- attacks.
Watch this demo to learn more about how these attacks work and how AlienVault USM gives you the built-in intelligence you need to spot trouble quickly.
- How these attacks work and what you can do to protect your network
- What data you need to collect to identify the warning signs of an attack
- How to identify impacted assets so you can quickly limit the damage
- How Unified Security Management (USM) can simplify detection with built-in correlation rules and threat intelligence.
Both sources offer Africa’s eHealth projects a start. It also needs to be part of comprehensive cyber-security strategies.
