AWS SQL Injection (?)

Looks like the webserver has a Web application firewall installed (WAF). My would guess this https://github.com/SpiderLabs/ModSecurity. Has nothing to do with AWS database per se, the WAF is running on the server along Apache, as a module. Log entry was triggered because an SQL injection attempt was detected and stopped. As it looks now the website is potentially under attack.

It may seem like overkill, but there are web application firewalls designed to specifically prevent common web attacks such as XSS and SQL Injection. Using a web application firewall (WAF) is not necessary for most applications, but for applications that require strong security, they can be a great resource. One such WAF is ModSecurity, which is available for Apache, Nginx, and IIS. Check out their wiki for more information.
