2014-02-20: SQL injection attack exposed.

The value of comprehensive logging of web based applications and services was demonstrated once again when a site developed for a business operating in the cloud, came under attack from criminals trying to force the developers client to use their services.

Using the system logs, City Linux was quickly able to identify the vulnerability to a SQL injection attack which the developer was then quickly able to eradicate.
