The correct answer is A.

OBJ-3.4: A SQL injection poses the most direct and more impactful threat to an organization’s database. A SQL injection could allow the attacker to execute remote commands on the database server and lead to sensitive information disclosure. A buffer overflow attack attempts to overwrite the memory buffer to send additional data into adjacent memory locations. A buffer overflow attack might target a database server, but it isn’t intended to disclose information directly. Instead, a buffer overflow attack may be used to gain initial access to a server and allow for other malicious code running. A denial of service targets the availability of the information by attempting to take the server offline. A cross-site scripting attack typically is focused on the user, not the server or database.
