SQL Injection Attacks by Example More about Printer Friendly

"SQL Injection" is subset of the an unverified/unsanitized user input vulnerability ("buffer overflows" are a different subset), and the idea is to convince the application to run SQL code that was not intended. If the application is creating SQL strings naively on the fly and then running them, it's straightforward to create some real surprises.

We'll note that this was a somewhat winding road with more than one wrong turn, and others with more experience will certainly have different -- and better -- approaches. But the fact that we were successful does suggest that we were not entirely misguided.

There have been other papers on SQL injection, including some that are much more detailed, but this one shows the rationale of discovery as much as the process of exploitation.

Connection Strings Explained More about Printer Friendly

Connection strings can be a bit obscure and is not often defined in a consistent way. This article straighten things out and sheds some light on how connection strings are used to connect an application to a data source.


When your application connects to a database or a data file you let ADO or ADO.Net utilize a provider to do the job for you. The connection string contains the information that the provider need to know to be able to establish a connection to the database or the data file. Because there are different providers and each providers have multiple ways to make a connection there are many different ways to write a connection string. It's like the address when sending a regular mail. Depending on the origin and destination and who is going to make the transport you need to write down the address in different ways.

-- Just a few minutes ago I finally opened my site after quite a bit of work. I have forked RavenNuke to create PMC-Nuke. I decided to do this once I heard about RavenCMS. You won't see themes for any version of Nuke that are better than the ones I made for PMC-Nuke. With this fork I changed a lot of things. Here's a small bit of what I've done thus far.

-- Over 20+ years experience and I have never used an editor and don't plan on starting now. So Bootstrap, SASS and {less} well I won't say how I feel about them.

-- 10 new themes and growing. The themes themselves are pure CSS3 gradient. I did add 20x20px button icons to spice it up a bit and some larger graphics at the top of the different modules.

-- I completely revamped the Your Account area, registration and forums. Those areas will look alien to you now.

-- I spent a lot of time on the forums and private message areas. All of the forum files are HTML5 compliant. I stripped out a ton of unnecessary code and left the images for now.

-- There are no graphics in the header logo area just colors, gradients and special fonts over shadows. Also there are no graphics in the themes image folder either. I built the core base of the theme system and now a theme can be designed and finished within an hour.

-- You'll see two fonts (besides the usual ones)  throughout all 10 themes, they are, Walkway and UpperEastSide.

-- Security wasn't compromised in any of the PHP files I edited. Also the ones I did edit are HTML5 compliant and I have plans on making the entire package HTML5.

-- LOL I've been open just a few minutes and already have an abuse notification in my email.

-- I closed all options to selecting an instant messenger and replaced it with social media access. I don't think anyone uses IM's anymore do they?

-- Since it is a news site I added 125 of the most popular news sources and blogs. I read through them all of the time. I also have a secure contact form at the bottom of the page where I can get quick contacts from members.

-- I could go on-and-on but I'll quit here. Stop in, become a member and have a look around.
