sql injection in 5 chapters
A method of finding websites vulnerable to SQL injection is using what we call "dorks"
Dorks:They are like search criteria in which a search engine returns results related to your dork.
The process can be a little time consuming, but the outcome will be worth it after learning on how to use dorks
For this tutorial, the search engine we'll be using is Google
Step1: Finding your dorks i.e. the criteria you'll be using
For this tutorial, we'll be using this dork "inurl:index.php?id="
Step2: Making use of your Dorks with the help of Google
Here's what you do:
Go to http://www.google.com
Type the dork in the search bar "inurl:index.php?id=" (with or without quotes)
Now you'll find a whole lot of links in your results
Here's how you can speed up your process:
In your mouse, there should be a scroll button right?
Hover your mouse on each link and hit the scroll button so that it'll open on a new tab. (Lets say you can open about 10 links at a time)
Step3: Vulnerability approach
Now to see whether the website is vulnerable to SQL injection or not, we simply put in a quote " ' " at the end of the url address.
So our site will look like this
Do the same thing with the websites you opened on your tabs and see if there's any vulnerable website.
To determine if a website is vulnerable or not, it should return an error!
Note: If you can't find any vulnerability after doing some vulnerability search on this dork, you can always browse the dork list I've mentioned above and use any of them until you find any website vulnerable to SQL injection
Extra Notes: Hunting for specific websites with specific domains
Ever want to hack a government website, or an organization website?
It's simple. All you have to do is improvise your dorks.
First off, here are some common domains
.gov = Government websites
.edu = Educational websites
.org = Organizational websites
.com = Commercial websites
.info = Informative websites
.net = Networking websites ( similar to .com)
Alright now you know some specific domains, lets add them to our dork shall we?
Follow this formula-like dork
So you would normally understand it like this:
"inurl" = input URL
"domain" = your desired domain ex. .gov
"dorks" = your dork of your choice
Now for an example, lets say you want to hack government websites
Here's how it'll look
Once you search that up, you'll find a lot of government websites on your results
Changing "inurl" and using another one
Yes, you can change that too.
Google has a lot of functions you can come up with
Some of them are below where you can change "inurl" and make another dork
Choose any of the and make another.
