SQL injection is the most common and most dangerous web application hacking technique in SQL injection a hacker take advantages of misconfiguration and poor coding of SQL. SQL injection will take an attacker to the important database that might contain credit card information, administrative information and more. There are so many tools are available for SQL injection, you can use w3af, nikto and others to find the sql vulnerability on a web application. Backtrack 5 also contain so many tools like sqlmap.
What Is SQLsus?
sqlsus is an open source MySQL injection and takeover tool, written in perl.
Via a command line interface, you can retrieve the database(s) structure, inject your own SQL queries (even complex ones), download files from the web server, crawl the website for writable directories, upload and control a backdoor, clone the database(s), and much more…
Whenever relevant, sqlsus will mimic a MySQL console output.sqlsus focuses on speed and efficiency, optimising the available injection space, making the best use (I can think of) of MySQL functions.
It uses stacked subqueries and an powerful blind injection algorithm to maximise the data gathered per web server hit. Using multithreading on top of that, sqlsus is an extremely fast database dumper, be it for inband or blind injection.
If the privileges are high enough, sqlsus will be a great help for uploading a backdoor through the injection point, and takeover the web server.
It uses SQLite as a backend, for an easier use of what has been dumped, and integrates a lot of usual features (see below) such as cookie support, socks/http proxying, https.
