Tailored WordPress Security Report

Be informed about the latest SQL Injections MAY 2021, identified and reported publicly. As these SQL Injections MAY 2021 vulnerabilities have a severe negative impact on any WordPress Security, consider our FREE security AUDIT.

An estimated 751.000+ active WordPress installations are susceptible to this attack type, considering only the publicly available numbers. The estimated number can increase by 20-25% with premium versions as they are private purchases.

Furthermore, the initial estimation can multiply if we consider the already patched versions BUT NOT UPDATED by owners, as the vulnerability remains active within their domain. As these owners start changing their hosting provider (due to constant unexplained issues), they actively migrate these vulnerabilities behind protected areas, possibly exposing other clean WP to different attack types.

It is a 300% increase spike compared to December 2020. We compare last month versus previous winter holiday season, which has the biggest shopping traffic and attack spike throughout the year.

In many cases, an attacker can modify or delete this data, causing persistent changes to the application’s content or behavior.

There are a wide variety of SQL injection vulnerabilities, attacks, and techniques, which arise in different situations. Some common SQL injection examples include:
Retrieving hidden data, where you can modify an SQL query to return additional results.
Subverting application logic, where you can change a query to interfere with the application’s logic.
UNION attacks, where you can retrieve data from different database tables.
Examining the database, where you can extract information about the version and structure of the database.
