The System administrators are dependent on intrusion detection tools to protect their systems against SQL Injection, XSS and other dangerous security threats in database-centric web applications. But the real effectiveness of these tools is usually unknown, which may lead the administrators to put an unjustifiable level of trust in the tools they use. The assessed tools are less effective and only on certain situations it can perform well. It shows a limitation in detection of attacks by the current intrusion detection tools.
