This paper presents an agent specially designed for the prevention and detection of SQL injection at the database layer of an application. The agent incorporates a Case-based reasoning mechanism whose main characteristic involves a mixture of neural networks that carry out the task of filtering attacks. The agent had been tested and the results obtained are presented in this study.
