How will SecurityChecker affect my database? Do I need to take any precautions to protect my data?
This article pertains to all versions of Security Checker.
Yes, SecurityChecker's Integrity Analysis can modify the data in the database. This is normal functioning for a product of this nature.
As SecurityChecker maps an application, it activates all buttons, fields, and links. If clicking these buttons or links causes the addition, modification, or deletion of records, the analysis phase will exercise the application and cause these modifications or deletions to occur. This is exercising the application as it was shown to us either through manual or automatic discovery.
If your applications interacts with a database, you should consider creating a reset script to return the database to its original state. This script should be run prior to, or immediately after an analysis session.
