  HTTP Request URI with SQL Statement (DECLARE SET CURSOR)

Category: INFO      

SQL injection is a code injection technique that exploits a security vulnerability occurring in the database layer of an application. The vulnerability is present when user input is either incorrectly filtered for string literal escape characters embedded in SQL statements or user input is not strongly typed and thereby unexpectedly executed.

This signature checks strings sent to local web server containing SQL statements "DECLARE" and "CAST". The combined statements are commonly used in SQL injection attacks.
