Due to the requirement for dynamic content of today's web applications, many
rely on a database backend to store data that will be called upon and processed
by the web application (or other programs).
Web applications retrieve data from the database by using Structured Query Language
(SQL) queries.

To meet demands of many developers, database servers (such as MSSQL, MySQL,
Oracle etc.) have additional built-in functionality that can allow extensive
control of the database and interaction with the host operating system itself.

An SQL injection occurs when a value originating from the client's request is used
within a SQL query without prior sanitisation. This could allow cyber-criminals
to execute arbitrary SQL code and steal data or use the additional functionality
of the database server to take control of more server components.

The successful exploitation of a SQL injection can be devastating to an
organisation and is one of the most commonly exploited web application vulnerabilities.

This injection was detected as Arachni was able to inject specific SQL queries,
that if vulnerable, result in the responses for each request being delayed before
being sent by the server.
This is known as a time-based blind SQL injection vulnerability.

            remedy_guidance: %q{
The only proven method to prevent against SQL injection attacks while still
maintaining full application functionality is to use parameterized queries
(also known as prepared statements).
When utilising this method of querying the database, any value supplied by the
client will be handled as a string value rather than part of the SQL query.

Additionally, when utilising parameterized queries, the database engine will
automatically check to make sure the string being used matches that of the column.
For example, the database engine will check that the user supplied input is an
integer if the database column is configured to contain integers.
