Injection Attacks

Injection attacks pose a serious threat to web applications. As more applications become web-based, these kind of attacks have become a growing concern. These attacks are usually embedded in the code itself so, it’s really quite complex to detect if your code has been injected with some malicious code. So to prevent this, it’s really important to have a secured code. I think one good way of securing web apps is by filtering all inputs which includes anything submitted through a form. Like what the guy did in the injection demo, a code can be easily manipulated by using special characters like ‘#’ and ‘!’ so filtering is really helpful to avoid these kind of attacks.
