SQL Injection attacks compromised 500,000 sites in 2008

According to annual Web Hacking Incidents Database (WHID) report of Breach Security. Last year more than 500,000 sites were compromised through SQL Injection. The report wraps up with a breakdown of the sectors that suffered the most attacks on their systems. Government, security, and law enforcement take the top spot with thirty-two percent, followed by Information services, retail, Internet, and education rounding out the top five.
It is a threatening situation for IT systems and man power. Major IT software vendors should prefer the security upon ease of use and to some extent on performance. In recent decade the motivation was to deliver easy to use and easy to maintain products. But keeping in view the rising security threats it is need of hour to turn towards no compromise to security issues.
