Ever since we started connecting websites to databases, SQL injection has been a serious security risk with dire ramifications. The ability for attackers to run arbitrary queries against vulnerable systems can result in data exposure, modification, and in some cases, entire system compromise. SQL injection is classified as the number one risk on the web today due to the "perfect storm" of risk factors. It's very easily discoverable, very easily exploited, and the impact of a successful attack is severe. Add to that the fact that injection risks remain rampant, it's clear how it deserves that number one spot. This course takes you through everything from understanding the SQL syntax used by attackers, basic injection attacks, database discovery and data exfiltration, advanced concepts, and even using injection for network reconnaissance and running system commands. It's everything an ethical hacker needs to know to be effective in identifying the SQL injection risk in target systems.
