There can be many security vulnerabilities in databases that are sometimes taken advantage of by malicious actors. According to the Github 2020 report, a vulnerability typically goes undetected for 218 weeks (just over four years) before being disclosed and fixed. Injection attacks, such as those on SQL and NoSQL, are among the most popular types of cyberattacks for web applications (as per OWASP Top 10).

SQL Injection attacks, brute-force attacks, SQL shell OS attacks leading to crypto-mining and ransomware, can be detected and remediated by the Azure Defender for SQL plan.
