SQL is short for “Sequential Query Language” and is the predominate way for applications to request data from a relational database. In layman’s terms, its a language we use to get data from storage quickly.

Sounds pretty basic right? We’ll not so fast. SQL suffers from a common, and preventable, security concern called SQL injections. Ignorance and bad practices in coding are what cause it.

Also, poorly run SQL statements can be very slow. Crashing your server or allowing malicious attackers a potential target for denial of service attacks.

Fear not, the developers at Proper Programming are on the hunt and are able to fix these issues quickly.
