This is a very interesting story. Apparently attackers are automating SQL injections on vulnerable sites/apps with SQL Server backends. I’ve always been a big fan of automated SQL injection tools such as what HP’s WebInspect has built-in but this brings a whole new meaning to automated SQL injection!
Yet another reason you need to be testing your Web applications for security vulnerabilities consistently and without fail.
“A business associate referred our company to Principle Logic when we were seeking a resource to perform vulnerability /penetration testing for our external and internal networks. We found Kevin Beaver to be professional, well informed, and easy to work with. His testing did not disrupt our networks, and his progress updates were timely.
His final report was very thorough and included security recommendations for our network environment. The executive leadership was so impressed with Kevin’s security expertise, they have extended their agreement to continue to perform periodic testing. We highly recommend Kevin Beaver and Principle Logic as a resource for network security testing.”
