CISA Activity - CISA and FBI Release Secure by Design Alert to Urge Manufacturers to Eliminate SQL Injection Vulnerabilities

  • Welcome to ITBible, we're your #1 resource for enterprise or homelab IT problems (or just a place to show off your stuff).


Today, CISA and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) released a joint Secure by Design Alert, Eliminating SQL Injection Vulnerabilities in Software. This Alert was crafted in response to a recent, well-publicized exploitation of SQL injection (SQLi) defects in a managed file transfer application that impacted thousands of organizations. Additionally, the Alert highlights the prevalence of this class of vulnerability.

Despite widespread knowledge and documentation of SQLi vulnerabilities over the past two decades, along with the availability of effective mitigations, software manufacturers continue to develop products with this defect, which puts many customers at risk.

CISA and the FBI urge senior executives at technology manufacturing companies to mount a formal review of their code to determine its susceptibility to SQLi compromises. If found vulnerable, senior executives should ensure their organizations’ software developers begin immediate implementation of mitigations to eliminate this entire class of defect from all current and future software products.
