This lesson covers the basics of using SQLmap. SQLmap is an open-source tool used in penetration testing to detect and exploit SQL injection flaws. SQLmap automates the process of detecting and exploiting SQL injection. SQL Injection attacks can take control of databases that utilize SQL. They can affect any website or web app that may have a SQL database linked to it, such as MySQL, SQL Server, Oracle and many others. These databases often contain sensitive data such as customer information, personal data, trade secrets, financial data and so on. Being able to find SQL vulnerabilities, and defend against them, is vital. SQLmap can help in finding these vulnerabilities.
