Test Your Apps for SQL Injection Attacks

Do you test your applications for SQL injection vulnerabilities? I came across a nice round-up of possible attacks here: SQL Injection Cheat Sheet It has a nice reference section.

About a year and half ago, I was going to submit some of my photographs to a stock library based in Queensland, Australia, and on a whim I decided to try a very basic SQL injection to see how secure this site would be with my financial details. It didn't pass! I contacted the owner/maintainer and told him about the problem. One year later, I checked back to see if it had been fixed. It had not. Needless to say, I don't list any photos with them!
