Summary: The number of SQL injection attacks has jumped by more than two thirds: from 277,770 in Q1 2012 to 469,983 in Q2 2012. This may be what hackers are using to steal all those e-mail addresses and passwords as of late.

SQL injection attacks are becoming significantly more popular amongst hackers, according to recent data. Between Q1 2012 and Q2 2012, there has been an estimated 69 percent increase of this attack type.

To add insult to injury, it's ridiculously simple and easy to properly sanitize user input before they get passed on to the according internal parsers. SQL injection attacks are one of the easiest things to fend off, in theory!

That said, overall laziness in IT security didn't start just recently and my bet is it won't end any time soon either. We've got the tools available but nobody uses them. :(
