This can be exploited by hackers to execute arbitrary SQL commands in the application's database. In certain cases, this may lead to the compromise of information or even complete takeover of the application. The id parameter is usually used to generate a unique record identifier in the application's data source.
Therefore, it is very important to limit the usage of this parameter to cases where it is absolutely necessary. This can be done by adding a LIMIT clause to id parameters or by not using id at all.
Avoiding SQL injection
SQL injection can be avoided by not using the id parameter in any of your queries.
SQL Injection - Bypassing Authenticationulnerable Code
SQL Injection is a type of security vulnerability that can be found on websites and applications. It allows attackers to inject SQL statements into the database server, resulting in potential access to sensitive information or even complete takeover of the application.
It's very important to limit the usage of id parameters and other parameters that allow for SQL injection by adding a LIMIT clause or not using these values at all. Otherwise, hackers may be able to exploit this vulnerability to execute commands against your database, which may lead to data loss or even compromise of your entire website’s security.
