SQL injections are often underestimated as they are mostly known as attack vectors designed to exploit tiny loopholes in applications, but they can often be extremely severe in nature. Truly malicious SQLs are typically employed in tandem with other attacks such as DDoS attacks, CSRFs, XSS attacks, and DNS hijacking to name a few in order to comprehensively and systematically destroy a system. Compounded SQLs are often impossible to prevent unless you have detailed security measures in place, and most enterprises often ignore the threat it poses. Successful SQLIs can lead to information loss, authentication bypass, and compromise data integrity among other things. Always take measures to protect yourself against hacking and other cyber crimes.
