Web applications frequently accept arguments within a supplied URL. These parameters are generally transmitted back to the web server in the HTTP
GET method requests. If any of these parameter values are then included in a query statement to a backend database, an SQL injection vulnerability could potentially exist. In this recipe, we will discuss how to use sqlmap to automate the testing of HTTP
GET method request parameters.
To use sqlmap to perform SQL injection against a target, you will need to have a remote system that is running one or more web applications that are vulnerable to SQL injection. In the examples provided, an instance of Metasploitable2 is used to perform this task. Metasploitable2 ...
