Is my code susceptible to SQL injection attack? [duplicate]
I have some code in Python that sets a char(80) value in an sqlite DB. The string is obtained directly from the user through a text input field and sent back to the server with a POST method in a JSON structure. On the server side I currently pass the string to a method calling the SQL UPDATE operation. It works, but I'm aware it is not safe at all. I expect that the client side is unsafe anyway, so any protection is to be put on the server side. What can I do to secure the UPDATE operation agains SQL injection ? A function that would "quote" the text so that it can't confuse the SQL parser is what I'm looking for. I expect such function exist but couldn't find it. Edit: Here is my current code setting the char field name label: def setLabel( self, userId, refId, label ): self._db.cursor().execute( """ UPDATE items SET label = ? WHERE userId IS ? AND refId IS ?""", ( label, userId, refId) ) self._db.commit()
From the documentation: con.execute("insert into person(firstname) values (?)", ("Joe",)) This escapes "Joe", so what you want is con.execute("insert into person(firstname) values (?)", (firstname_from_client,))
The DB-API's .execute() supports parameter substitution which will take care of escaping for you, its mentioned near the top of the docs; http://docs.python.org/library/sqlite3.html above Never do this -- insecure.
Noooo... USE BIND VARIABLES! That's what they're there for. See this Another name for the technique is parameterized sql (I think "bind variables" may be the name used with Oracle specifically).
