How to Check Multiple Text Inputs for SQL Injection Attacks in Python

Due to their ability to easily insert malicious content into web entry fields, SQL injection attacks are running rampant across the internet. These cyber-criminals find an opening via incorrect code that enables them to create a connection between the user and database and cause various security issues such as modifying/deleting data and obtaining administrative control of the server. To protect your business from these attackers, you can utilize the following API in Python to check multiple text inputs for SQL injection attacks in batch.

To use the API, our first step is to install the SDK by running this command:

pip install cloudmersive-validate-api-client

Now all we need to do is add your input requests and API key to the following code:

from __future__ import print_function
import time
import cloudmersive_validate_api_client
from cloudmersive_validate_api_client.rest import ApiException
from pprint import pprint
# Configure API key authorization: Apikey
configuration = cloudmersive_validate_api_client.Configuration()
configuration.api_key['Apikey'] = 'YOUR_API_KEY'
# create an instance of the API class
api_instance = cloudmersive_validate_api_client.TextInputApi(cloudmersive_validate_api_client.ApiClient(configuration))
value = cloudmersive_validate_api_client.SqlInjectionCheckBatchRequest() # SqlInjectionCheckBatchRequest | User-facing text input.
try:
# Check and protect multiple text inputs for SQL Injection (SQLI) attacks in batch
api_response = api_instance.text_input_check_sql_injection_batch(value)
pprint(api_response)
except ApiException as e:
print("Exception when calling TextInputApi->text_input_check_sql_injection_batch: %s\n" % e)

Once the process is complete, you will have a SQL detection result for each of your text inputs!
