SQL Injection Vulnerability in Google Lab Database System

June 30, 2011Mohit Kumar
SQL Injection Vulnerability in Google Lab Database System Very Big & Critical Vulnerability detected in Google Lab System. Vendor is already reported by hackers, But they don’t take positive step in this case, so finally hackers exposed  the vulnerability in public by  Bangladesh Cyber Army Admin - Shadman Tanjim on their Forum . Google Lab Website has SQL Injection Vulnerability and Dangerous thing is this Vulnerability is Exploitable. Hackers are able to get Tables, columns and data from Database. Google Lab Database has his own customize DB system. But Interesting things is their database system is Similar as Ms Access database. In this case Ms Access SQL Injection System is Also Work on Google Lab Database system. Statement By Hacker : I already contact with Google Corporation but they don’t give positive response, I think this is their big fault,  and will suffer for that.

Yahoo! Contributors Network ( contributor.yahoo.com ), the network of authors that generated the contents such as photographs, videos, articles and their knowledge to more than 600 million monthly visitors, was vulnerable to a Time based Blind SQL Injection vulnerability. Behrouz Sadeghipour, a security researcher reported the Blind SQLi vulnerability in Yahoo! ’s website that could be exploited by hackers to steal users’ and authors’ database, containing their personal information. Behrouz reported this flaw to Yahoo! Security team few months back. The team responded positively and within a month they patched the vulnerability successfully. Unfortunately after that Yahoo! announced to shut down ‘ Yahoo Contributors Network ’ due to its decreasing popularity and removed all the contents from the web, except some of the “work for hire” content may remain on the web. The critical vulnerability was able to expose the database which carried sensitive and personal inform

Flickr vulnerable to SQL Injection and Remote Code Execution Flaws

April 14, 2014Wang Wei
Yahoo-owned Flickr , one of the biggest online photo management and sharing website in the world was recently impacted by critical web application vulnerabilities, which left website's database and server vulnerable hackers. Ibrahim Raafat , a security researcher from Egypt has found SQL injection vulnerabilities on  Flickr Photo Books , new feature for printing custom photo books through Flickr that was launched 5 months ago. He claimed to have found two parameters ( page_id , items ) vulnerable to Blind SQL injection and one  (i.e. order_id ) Direct SQL Injection that allowed him to query the Flickr database for its content by the injection of a SQL SELECT statements. A Successful SQL exploitation could allow an attacker to steal the Database and MYSQL administrator password. Furthermore, Flickr's SQL injection flaws also facilitate the attacker to exploit remote code execution on the server and using  load_file(“/etc/passwd“)   function he was successfu
How to Detect SQL Injection Attacks

How to Detect SQL Injection Attacks

September 19, 2014Swati Khandelwal
SQL Injection (SQLi) attacks have been around for over a decade. You might wonder why they are still so prevalent. The main reason is that they still work on quite a few web application targets. In fact, according to Veracode’s 2014 State of Security Software Report , SQL injection vulnerabilities still plague 32% of all web applications. One of the big reasons is the attractiveness of the target – the database typically contains the interesting and valuable data for the web application. A SQLi attack involves inserting a malformed SQL query into an application via client-side input. The attack perverts the intentions of web programmers who write queries and provide input methods that can be exploited. There is a reason they’re on the OWASP Top 10 . Termed “ injection flaws ”, they can strike not only SQL, but operating systems and LDAP can fall prey to SQLi. They involve sending untrusted data to the interpreter as a part of the query. The attack tricks the interpreter into

Yahoo! Blind SQL Injection could lead to data leakage

April 26, 2013Anonymous
It seems that 2013 is the " Data Leakage Year "! Many customers' information and confidential data have been published on the internet coming from government institutions, famous vendors, and companies too. Ebrahim Hegazy(@Zigoo0) an Egyptian information security advisor who found a high severity vulnerability in " Avira license daemon " days ago, is on the news again, but this time for finding and reporting Blind SQL Injection vulnerability in one of Yahoo! E-marketing applications. SQL Injection vulnerabilities are ranked as Critical vulnerabilities, because if used by Hackers it will cause a database breach which will lead to confidential information leakage. A time based blind SQL Injection web vulnerability is detected in the official Yahoo! TW YSM Marketing Application Service. The vulnerability allows remote attackers to inject own SQL commands to breach the database of that vulnerable application and get access to the user data.

Hacker stole $100,000 from Users of California based ISP using SQL Injection

October 22, 2013Mohit Kumar
In 2013 we have seen a dramatic increase in the number of hack attacks attempted against banks, credit unions and utility companies using various techniques including  DDoS attack , SQL injection, DNS Hijacking and Zero-Day Flaws. SQL Injection is one of the most common security vulnerabilities on the web and is successful only when the web application is not sufficiently secured. Recently a hacking Group named ' TeamBerserk ' claimed on Twitter that, they have stolen $100,000 by leveraging user names and passwords taken from a California ISP Sebastian (Sebastiancorp.com)to access victims' bank accounts. A video proof was uploaded on the Internet, shows that how hackers used a SQL injection attack against the California ISP Sebastian to access their customers' database includes  e-mail addresses, user names and clear text passwords and then using the same data to steal money from those customers. Let's see what SQL Injection is and how ser

Preview : Web App Hacker's Handbook 2nd Edition ! The first draft of the new edition of WAHH is now completed, and the lengthy editing and production process is underway. Just to whet everyone's appetite, I'm posting below an exclusive extract from the Introduction, describing what has changed in the second edition. (And in a vain attempt to quell the tidal wave of questions: the book will be published in October; there won't be any more extracts; we don't need any proof readers, thanks.) What’s Changed in the Second Edition? In the four years since the first edition of this book was published, much has changed and much has stayed the same. The march of new technology has, of course, continued apace, and this has given rise to specific new vulnerabilities and attacks. The ingenuity of hackers has also led to the development of new attack techniques, and new ways of exploiting old bugs. But neither of these factors, technological or human, has created a rev
