SQL injection is an attack technique that can be used to extract, modify, add or delete information from database servers that are used by vulnerable web applications. SQL injection vulnerabilities are caused by an unsecured programming technique that allows client-supplied data to interfere with the syntax of SQL queries. SQL is a programming language that is used by applications to communicate with database systems.
