Rapid technological advancements and societal inclusion of these technologies have expanded civil and defense capabilities but have also created significant vulnerabilities. Cyber-weapons have the potential to affect interaction between states by exploiting this vulnerability. To better understand the mechanics of how cyber-weapons affect state relations this research applies a common framework to explore the attributes of traditional weapons—conventional, nuclear, and RMA—and how they typically influence this behavior. After proposing selected factors that influence the effectiveness of a cyber-attack, the research examines the cyber-attacks in 2007 on Estonia and 2008 on Georgia in order to refine and provide nuanced analysis on the role of the proposed causal factors. The proposed factors are government involvement, level of attack sophistication, and the degree to which the state is dependent upon digitally connected technology. The research indicates that the role of the state is one of the most significant factors in influencing the effectiveness of a cyber-attack and highlights the role that plausible deniability plays in this relationship. Some initial policy recommendations are made based on the finding that the use of cyber-weapons as a deterrent is still ill-defined and that the focus should be on decreasing state vulnerability to these attacks.

The book describes about the threats on the database.we provide descriptions and examples of how attacks of different type could be performed. we also present a methodology to prevent SQL injection attacks. It concentrate on the SQL queries and SQL Stored procedure where Input parameters are injected by the attacker.SQL injection refers to a class of code-injection attacks in which data provided by the user is included in an SQL query in such a way that part of the user’s input is treated as SQL code.Even if the injected code is intercepted before execution, administrators are often presented with information that does not identify clearly the association between the commands that were attempted, the assets that were at risk, the threats that were imposed, and the countermeasures he/she has at disposal. To address these issues, a repository of SQL injection attacks that are classified in a semantic-aware, easy to comprehend model is needed.
