SQL Penetration Testing
SQL Injection is a technique often used to attack a website. It is the most common website vulnerability on the Internet.
The objective of this lab is to provide expert knowledge on SQL Injection attacks and other responsibilities that include:
Understanding when and how a web application connects to a database server in order to access data
Extracting basic SQL Injection flaws and vulnerabilities
Testing web applications for Blind SQL Injection vulnerabilities
Scanning web servers and analyzing the reports
Information on securing web applications and web servers
The SQL Injection attack is carried out by including portions of SQL statements in a web form entry field in an attempt to get the website to pass a newly formed rogue SQL command to the database (e.g., dump the database contents to the attacker). SQL injection is a code injection technique that exploits a security vulnerability in a website's software. The vulnerability happens when user input is either incorrectly filtered for string literal escape characters embedded in SQL statements or user input is not strongly typed and unexpectedly executed. SQL commands are thus injected from the web form into the database of an application (like queries) to change the database content or dump the database information like credit card or passwords to the attacker. SQL injection is mostly known as an attack vector for websites but can be used to attack any type of SQL database.
As an expert Penetration Tester or a Security Administrator, you must use diverse solutions, prepare statements with bind variables and whitelisting input validation and escaping. Input validation can be used to detect unauthorized input before it is passed to the SQL query.
