Microsoft Urlscan Helps to Filter SQL Injection Attacks

Microsoft recently re-released an improved version of a security filter for IIS that is designed to help thwart SQL injection attacks by restricting the types of HTTP requests that IIS will process. UrlScan 3.0 is an IIS add-on that provides real-time validation of HTTP server requests, potentially blocking SQL injection exploits.

UrlScan has actually been available for several years, but Microsoft added some new features in this 3.0 release, including support for query string scanning.
