MIS 340

We are headed into the final section of Dr. Hogan’s MIS 340 class. After finishing up our third test, and returning from spring break we are headed into the section on security.  We are currently studying common vulnerabilities in software today and more importantly how to defend against malicious cyber-attacks.

One of the more common types of attacks is called SQL injection. This method of attack involves sending a query to a database that using a login form to return data, or change the database. This can be defended by validating the data of the field before it is sent to the database preventing unintended results.
