sqlmap 0.9 added to online security scans

Latest update to the site tools is the addition of the new SqlMap 0.9 release to the Online SQL Injection scanner.

This is a tool that takes SQL Injection to the next level and beyond. While our online scan tests for Sql Injection in HTTP GET requests, this is only the beginning. This tool can exploit sql injection to give the tester an full operating system access either via an inserted shell or by external command execution. Does not matter if you are on Windows or Linux it can do both.

All the details are on the main site. Or here is a quick list of improvements:

  • Full support for MySQL, Oracle, PostgreSQL, Microsoft SQL Server, Microsoft Access, SQLite, Firebird, Sybase and SAP MaxDB database management systems.
  • Full support for five SQL injection techniques: boolean-based blind, time-based blind, error-based, UNION query and stacked queries.
  • Support to directly connect to the database without passing via a SQL injection, by providing DBMS credentials, IP address, port and database name.
  • Support to enumerate database users, users' password hashes, users' privileges, users' roles, databases, tables and columns.
  • Automatic recognition of password hashes format and support to crack them with a dictionary-based attack.
  • Support to dump database tables entirely, a range of entries or specific columns as per user's choice. The user can also choose to dump only a range of characters from each column's entry.
  • Support to search for specific database names, specific tables across all databases or specific columns across all databases' tables. This is useful, for instance, to identify tables containing custom application credentials where relevant columns' names contain string like name and pass.
  • Support to download and upload any file from the database server underlying file system when the database software is MySQL, PostgreSQL or Microsoft SQL Server.
  • Support to execute arbitrary commands and retrieve their standard output on the database server underlying operating system when the database software is MySQL, PostgreSQL or Microsoft SQL Server.
  • Support to establish an out-of-band stateful TCP connection between the attacker machine and the database server underlying operating system. This channel can be an interactive command prompt, a Meterpreter session or a graphical user interface (VNC) session as per user's choice.
  • Support for database process' user privilege escalation via Metasploit's getsystem command which inclhttp://testphp.vulnweb.com/artists.php?artist=2ude, among others, the kitrap0d technique ( MS10-015).
