I am using CodeIgniter for two years and I am digging into penetration testing nowadays. I think that ActiveRecord does good job for preventing sql injections, but i have following questions:

  1. I want to know is there any possibility of bypassing ActiveRecord's filter system by ASCII Encoded / Binary String SQL injection?

  2. If it is possible, then how to prevent ASCII Encoded / Binary String SQL injection?

The question in your title is not the same as your first question in the body since prevention is not the same as knowing if there is actually a vulnerability. I'm not familiar with CodeIgniter, but you might check the source code to see if it uses prepared statements. –  HamZa Nov 8 '13 at 18:57
