1. APIs are the digital connectors that enable businesses to communicate with the rest of the world. Unfortunately, malicious users may gain access to backend systems by inserting unintended commands or expressions that can be used to drop, delete, upgrade, or even generate arbitrary data that APIs can access.
Drupal, for example, disclosed a SQL injection vulnerability in October 2014, giving attackers access to databases, code, and file folders. Because of the severity of the assault, attackers could have copied all data from clients' websites. There are many forms of injection risks, but SQL Injection, RegExInjection, and XML Injection are the most common. We've seen APIs go live without threat security on many occasions, and it's not unusual.
