MEETING: June 24, 2010, 6-8 pm: SQL Injection Lab
• A basic understanding of Relational Databases
SQL Injection can be a serious vulnerability that is actively being exploited "in the wild." This lab will help the attendee understand SQL Injection through live demonstrations and hands-on activities. We will be splitting into groups of 3-4 to perform the lab exercises. Once the lab activities have ended, we will look at methods for limiting and preventing SQL injection.
Please come to the lab prepared with a laptop that contains an installed copy of Virtual Box, running Maven’s Web Security Dojo. The software will provide us with a virtual training environment.
Please also download the MYSQL Injection cheat from pentestmonkey.net, we will need it to complete the third lab.
