SQL Server Hosting Tips: How to Prevent SQL Injection?

SQL injection is a code injection technique, used to attack data-driven applications, in which malicious SQL statements are inserted into an entry field for execution (e.g. to dump the database contents to the attacker).SQL injection allows an attacker to create, read, update, alter or delete data stored in the back-end database. In its most common form, a SQL injection attack gives access to sensitive information such as social security numbers, credit card numbers or other financial data. According to Veracode’s State of Software Security Report, SQL injection is one of the most prevalent types of web application security vulnerability. Today, I will show you how to prevent sql injection attacks at stored procedure level. Now write the following code:

CREATE PROCEDURE SearchHistory_Dynamic (  
@Product int = NULL,   
@OrderID int = NULL,   
@TransactionType char(1) = NULL,   
@Qty int = NULL)  
AS  
 
DECLARE @sSQL NVARCHAR(2000), @Where NVARCHAR(1000) = ''  
 
SET @sSQL = 'SELECT ProductID, ReferenceOrderID, TransactionType, Quantity, TransactionDate, ActualCost  
from Production.TransactionHistory '  
   
IF @Product is not null  
SET @Where = @Where + 'AND ProductID = @_Product '  
IF @OrderID is not null  
SET @Where = @Where + 'AND ReferenceOrderID = @_OrderID '  
IF @TransactionType IS NOT NULL  
SET @Where = @Where + 'AND TransactionType = @_TransactionType '  
IF @Qty IS NOT NULL  
SET @Where = @Where + 'AND Quantity = @_Qty '  
   
IF LEN(@Where) > 0  
SET @sSQL = @sSQL + 'WHERE ' + RIGHT(@Where, LEN(@Where)-3)  
   
EXEC sp_executesql @sSQL,  
N'@_Product int, @_OrderID int, @_TransactionType char(1), @_Qty int',  
@_Product = @Product, @_OrderID = @OrderID, @_TransactionType = @TransactionType, @_Qty = @Qty  
   
GO
