Hello, today we are making an Python MySQL SQL Injection checking tool. That’s why we named it Code your first simple SQL Injection checking vulnerability with Python ?
It will work only on GET parameter using websites.
You are going to need:
– Python 3.4
– Internet Connection
– A vulnerable website
– Computer with Windows or Linux
If you haven’t got installed Python yet, download it from the following link:
Python is written in C, it is one of the easiest programming languages for hacking tools, it includes alot of very useful libs, today, we will use 1 of them,
Finding a website for testing
You can easily find a website for testing using simple SQLi dorks, like inurl:”index.php?cat_id=”. You can find vulnerable site dumps over the web.
Step by step Code your first simple SQLi checking vulnerability with Python:
Before starting coding, make a new .py file.
Importing main libraries
This time we will use sys, urllib and urllib.request modules, so import those 3 by using import sys, urllib, urllib.request or import sys, import urllib and import urllib.request in the new line
Explanation: ‘import’ is used for importing libraries, such as urllib or os, system.
Selecting the input type
Now we need to select the input type, the first one is pretty simple, the other one is harder. This time we will use the first one, but it does not affect other lines of code.
1) Use input(“”) commands to get user input. This time it will be:
fullurl = input(“Please specify the full vulnerable url: “)
Explanation: ‘variable = input(“Input: “)’ sets the var ‘variable’ to user input, ‘Input: ‘ is the text seen by the user at the input line.
2) Use arguments for specifying the data:
for carg in sys.argv:
if carg == “-w”:
argnum = sys.argv.index(carg)
argnum += 1
fullurl = sys.argv[argnum]
Explanation: ‘if’ is a well known macro stament. Right now, we are using it to determine curent arg, the other lines – indicates the second argument, ‘in’ – checks if there is a specified text in a string.
Coding the program to make an web request
This is the most important part.
resp = urllib.request.urlopen(fullurl + “=1′ or ‘1’ = ‘1””)
body = resp.read()
fullbody = body.decode(‘utf-8’)
Explanation: the resp variable is set to the request response, body – to the response text, fullbody – to the decoded request text, ‘+’ is the addition variable on Python, is the escape character.
Making the program to check if the target is vulnerable
Now, once we have the response, we have to check if it contains SQL errors.
We will use this code for that:
if “You have an error in your SQL syntax” in fullbody:
print (“The website is classic SQL injection vulnerable!”)
print (“The website is not classic SQL injection vulnerable!”)
Explanation: We use ‘if’ macro for checking if there’s the specified text in the response.
Scanner with first type of getting user input
with second type
So yeah, that’s it!
Save the file, open cmd and run ‘python filename.py’ and input the requested info, if you were using the second method, use ‘python filenamy.py -w website’. It will check if the site’s vulnerable ?
The copied code may not work, please rewrite it to your file ?
If you had errors in syntax
Unexpected indendity shows up when there are problems with tabs.
Problems with syntax are mostly showing up on problems with macros. If this error occured, please check your macros validity.
How to prevent simple SQL injection
Preventing SQLi ON MYSQL if very simple. Just use mysql_real_escape string for queries, as example:
$query = sprintf(“SELECT * FROM users where user=’%s’ AND password=’%s’,
ADVICE: after having success on this scanner, try to making a heartbleed exploiter ?

i love your blog and theme style.please tell us which theme r u using it will be more helpfull for me
Thank you so much for writing this post, i hope you will be writing more of them in future too, i am a very big fan of you.
what program are you using to write the .py file? and where did you input the “for carg in sys.argv” lines?
Download the python offical dev kit from python’s website. It is called Python IDLE.
could you provide me with a link to IDLE? i have searched but am unable to find it or the dev kit
the learning guy
wait I was doing this and the = in the , if carg = “-w”, is a syntax error somehow
i got the same error
It is ==, not =. Probably a typo in the photo.
== not =, a typo in the photo.
the learning guy
i made my own sql checker but , this tool scans the whole server not only one website ?
works with python 3.4.3? or have to be with 3.4.0 cuz i listen that 3.4.3 have some problems
you have to download the modules and libs for this tutorial
I don’t know about how to do hacking.
I am php developer but i want to learn this and improve my skills.
but i don’t know how to learn hacking from this site or any other and not know what thing is required for hacking and
what tool required .
please anybody help me from where i start to learn hacking what knowledge is required and where i start from this.
i tried my best to get knowledge about hacking but nothing special i have.
i completed main level and basic level but in every next level i find i have nothing every level is so up then my knowledge.
If any body feel my problem please help me i am waiting for your answer…
I shall be thankful to you
i am work this tutorial
