    SQL injection walkthrough

    11th May 2009

    SecuriTeam has an old, but still very useful article on SQL injection.

    I’ve created a PDF of that article, containing some of the comments (all the ‘thank-you’ and ‘help-me-hack’ comments were removed): sql injection walkthrough pdf download.

    Note: there were no specific license terms attached to the article; I believe that the word “free” on the SecuriTeam site logo refers to the “right of free use and copying”. If you know this is not the case – please let me know to remove this PDF from public access. (see Brian’s comment)

      Your use of the article on SQL injection is fine.

      FYI: The term ‘free’ on our web site relates to having no cost.

      Your nice layout that includes our URL in the footer is good.

      Question: I’d like to find someone who would like to do a review on web site scanning tools. Do you know of anyone who does that kind of writing?

      Hi Brian,

      thanks for granting permission on the PDF version of the article.

      Unfortunately, I do not know anyone capable of both doing a review you want and then writing it.

      I would be interested in doing that myself, but I’m not really a specialist in web-security (despite being an experienced LAMP programmer), and still would expect some kind of a bonus/reward for this kind of effort :) If that sounds fine, then I might come up with a review of 2-4 tools within several weeks (testing them on my sites). Initial tool suggestions would be welcome then. Contact form sends an email right to my inbox.

      sqlmap package has recently become available in Debian testing, and it performs automated SQL injection analysis.
      I’ve just installed it, might post later my experience using it.
