Re: SQL Injection???



I have a few programs that dynamically build SQL statements in RPG. Is
this what you mean or do you mean using html & javascript variables?

Re: [WEB400] SQL Injection???

From my basic understanding of how this works, the big thing is not to
dynamically build the SQL statements. Do not do:

"Select * from MyTable where MyKey = " + passedkeyfield;

Instead, make use of the host variables.

This is one of my security goals for this year in case you're curious.
