One very effective tool to guard against SQL injection attacks, and many others, is the modsecurity module for Apache. I used it to mitigate a legacy Perl/MySQL app, that would otherwise had to be shut down for contractual compliance reasons with mandated security audits.

The ONLY way to completely guard against SQL injection is to always use parameterized queries. If you're not doing that all the fancy logging / detection is just going to help you detect the damage being done.

Unkown, I I hear your point, but even parameterized queries is not 100% guaranteed protection. Perhaps that's a subject for another blog post.
