SQL injection attacks target databases of web servers. The ability to modify, update, retrieve and delete database contents imposes a high risk on any website in different sectors. In this paper, we investigate the efforts done in the literature to detect and prevent the SQL injection attacks. We also assess the efficiency of the Modsecurity web application firewall in preventing SQL injection attacks. © 2020 IEEE.
