Use Cases for SQL Injection Scanner

SQL injection remains one of the favourite attack vectors for attackers and penetration testers. Use the SQL Injection Scanner to speed up the penetration testing process and identify web application vulnerabilities for best results and effective performance.
It’s always good practice to conduct periodic scans for SQL injection vulnerabilities in your website, so that any discovered flaws can be patched by developers before the attackers find out and attempt to exploit them.
If you’re developing web applications for your customers, it’s good to have a security audit report that can demonstrate to them and prove that their websites are secure from SQL injection attacks.

Technical Details

An SQL injection attack is one of the most popular cyberattacks and it is even mentioned in the OWASP Top 10 report. Nearly every attacker and penetration tester knows how to perform this attack to exploit the vulnerability in web applications, which is also very popular in bug bounty programs.

A common way to perform this attack is to inject malicious SQL statements directly in the browser URL bar or in web forms. The HTTP request containing the malicious SQL statements will then be sent to the web server for processing. If the SQL queries or statements are not sanitized properly, the server-side script may execute the malicious SQL statement literally.

Depending on the motive of the attacker, SQL injection may perform these actions:

  • Steal sensitive data from the database, such as credit card numbers
  • Manipulate data in the database
  • Gain access to administrative pages without using correct credentials
  • Drop/delete tables in the database
  • Instruct the server to run operating system commands (in certain conditions)

The SQL Injection Scanner has two type of scans, which are Quick Scan and Full Scan.

The table below shows the differences between Quick Scan and Full Scan.

How it works?

How it works

It’s important to secure your web applications from SQL injection attacks by implementing proper security mechanisms, such as query sanitization before hackers find out.

Our SQL injection scanner is based on the OWASP ZAP engine. OWASP ZAP is currently one of the most popular open-source vulnerability assessment tools that is supported by hundreds of developers and other community members.

This tool conducts SQL injection testing by inserting special characters in all form fields of the target web application and affects the webpage behaviour to be observed. In most cases, database errors showing in the webpage indicates that the web application might be vulnerable to SQL injection attacks.

IMPORTANT: When performing a scan, the SQL Injection Scanner tool does not attempt to exploit the SQL injection vulnerability and cause damage to your system. Instead, it is only to be used to try and detect the presence of the vulnerability itself.
