How to Check Text Inputs for SQL Injection Attacks in Go

Structured Query Language (SQL) is a domain-specific language that is manipulated into malicious content for SQL injection attacks. The main target of these threats are web applications and databases that utilize online forms; the injected attack exploits incorrectly coded fields within the form which, if executed, can have serious security implications. Since these attacks often fall outside the detection capabilities of firewalls and basic anti-virus software, we will demonstrate how you can use the following API in Go to provide a layer of protection against SQL injection by scanning input text.

To call the function, simply add your text input string and API key into the below code:

package main

With this easy-to-use tool, you will be able to ensure SQL injection threats don’t adversely affect you or your users. Need to obtain an API key? Visit the Cloudmersive website to register for a free account that will provide access to 800 monthly calls across our library of APIs.
