Web Attacks: SQL Injection
In this lab, you’ll practice SQL injection. When you’re finished with this lab, you’ll have the ability to inject SQL into a web request to alter the query being delivered to the database.
Terms and conditions apply.
Getting Started in the Lab Environment
Here are the initial instructions and explanation of the lab environment. Read this while your environment is busy creating itself from nothing. Yes, this violates physics; we know. How fun!
Inject Commands into SQL Requests
Here you’ll learn how to identify a field which has a SQL injection vulnerability. You'll then use that field to modify the SQL query being sent to a database.
Change Logic in SQL Syntax
Here you'll be more specific with your injected code. You’ll take known information about a user (e.g. email address) and log in as that user without knowing their password.
The Last Challenge
Welcome to the final challenge! This is your last chance to experiment in the environment. Clicking Finish Lab will end this little world that flittered into existence just for you.
Provided environment for hands-on practice
We will provide the credentials and environment necessary for you to practice right within your browser.
Follow along with the author’s guided walkthrough and build something new in your provided environment!
