SQL injections are one of the biggest issues in online security, because it doesn’t matter if you’re being careful with your passwords online or anything like that, as to do this form of online hacking you don’t need to have password information.

So what is SQL injection? SQL injection is a technique where you enter code into a data field, this then causes the website to execute the code, which is typically account details of members of the website. These account details can then be used to defraud the owner of the account, either by taking the password they used for the account and then checking other services to see if the account holder has used the same password for those services, or by taking the credit card/payment details from the account and then buying a load of products with it before they’re discovered.
