How to Check Multiple Text Inputs for SQL Injection Attacks in Node.JS

SQL injection attacks are rising in number and show no indication of slowing down; since form entry fields are where the security vulnerability lies for this threat, practically every website is susceptible. Now while firewalls can make the infiltration more difficult for an attacker, they cannot prevent them entirely. But, by utilizing the following API in your web application, you can check multiple text inputs for SQL injection attacks in batch.

Let’s start using the API in Node.JS by running this command to install the SDK:

npm install cloudmersive-validate-api-client --save

Or if your prefer, you can add this snippet to your package.json:

"dependencies": {
"cloudmersive-validate-api-client": "^1.3.9"

Now that we’ve completed the installation, we can insert the text inputs for our batch request and call the function with the following code:

var CloudmersiveValidateApiClient = require('cloudmersive-validate-api-client');
var defaultClient = CloudmersiveValidateApiClient.ApiClient.instance;
// Configure API key authorization: Apikey
var Apikey = defaultClient.authentications['Apikey'];
Apikey.apiKey = 'YOUR API KEY';
var apiInstance = new CloudmersiveValidateApiClient.TextInputApi();var value = new CloudmersiveValidateApiClient.SqlInjectionCheckBatchRequest(); // SqlInjectionCheckBatchRequest | User-facing text input.var callback = function(error, data, response) {
if (error) {
} else {
console.log('API called successfully. Returned data: ' + data);
apiInstance.textInputCheckSqlInjectionBatch(value, callback);

With this easy automated process, detection results will be at your fingertips by the end of the batch cycle.

There’s an API for that. Cloudmersive is a leader in Highly Scalable Cloud APIs.
