News Flash: SQL Injection Still a Problem

 | July 18, 2012 |  Posted In: Events and Announcements, Insight for Developers


The threat of SQL injection has appeared prominently in the news recently:

SQL injection was documented as a security threat in 1998, but new incidents still occur every month.  Making honest mistakes, developers fail to defend against this means of attack, and the security of online data is at risk for all of us because of it.

Most computer professionals have heard of SQL injection, but advice about how to prevent this issue is generally incomplete and oversimplified.

On July 25 2012, I will present SQL Injection Myths and Fallacies as a Percona webinar, to help shed light on the nature of the problem, and effective defenses against it.  Whether you’re a software developer who uses databases, or a DBA who is responsible for secure operations, I hope you register for this webinar and join me as an evangelist for secure web programming.

Your online information is at risk too!
