What is SQL Injection (SQLi)?

SQL injection, or SQLi, is a cyberattack method in which malicious code is inserted without the user’s consent. The code used is in the form of SQL statements, programming code designed to perform routine tasks on a database. SQLi is typically used to perform tasks such as dumping all of the data from a database to the attacker, or hand over administrative control of the database itself. It may also destroy data, change or corrupt specific data fields, or void transactions and change balances.
