Fix Recommendation

If the ADC is used to load balance web servers where data can be entered and used in databases or other applications, configure the ADC to prevent code injection attacks.

A Web Application Firewall (WAF) template is configured and bound to a virtual port.

The following command configures a WAF template with the SQLIA Check option:
slb template waf <template name>
sqlia-check [reject | sanitize]

Note: The "sanitize" option is allowed but is not preferred due to the increased CPU load.

Check Contents

If the ADC is not used to load balance web servers where data can be entered and used in databases or other applications, this is not applicable.

Interview the device administrator to determine which WAF template is used for web servers where data can be entered and used in databases or other applications. Review the device configuration.

The following command displays WAF templates:
show slb template waf

If the configured WAF template does not have the "sqlia-check" option configured, this is a finding.
