Do they search on Google, etc. using keywords like "shopdisplayproducts.asp" in order to find VPASP sites? If I excluded the cart pages from the search engines would that mean hackers wouldn't be able to find the site?

Also what is injection anyway? Injecting unwanted data into the DB? Do they do it through forms? Does it create new records in the DB?

Yes, ASPdummy, that is exactly the kind of thing many of them do to find VP-ASP sites.

As for injection, it's not just about getting data into databases, but getting it out. By playing with a URL parameter, a hacker tries to add things to your SQL query in order to get more "useful" (for them) data from your database, even through error messages.

There's nothing like "unable to convert 'username/password' into data of type int" to the eyes of a hacker.

don't forget to download our freebie sql-injection-checker script if you haven't already; it'll check every column in every table for potential hacks:


it's totally free, and you don't need a byz license key for it, and it's really easy to install. It'll also check custom-created columns without you having to alter the script/config-options, and also even checks custom-created tables.
