SQLBrute is a tool for brute forcing data out of databases using blind SQL injection vulnerabilities. It supports time based and error based exploit types on Microsoft SQL Server, and error based exploit on Oracle. It is written in Python, uses multi-threading, and doesn't require non-standard libraries. A walkthrough of using SQLBrute can be found on Justin Clarke's personal blog.
Andro Hackbar is a web penetration tool built for Android where you can perform SQL injection, XSS, and LFI flaws. This is a pentesting tool to test websites to know if it is unsecured or vulnerable from such attacks. This tool can be used to secure websites from attackers/hackers.
DroidSQLi is the automated MySQL injection tool for Android. It allows you to test MySQL-based web application against SQL injection attacks. It automatically selects the best technique to use and employs some simple filter-evasion methods. It supports time-based, blind, error-based, and normal injection.
An advanced threat protection service continuously monitors your SQL servers for threats such as SQL injection, brute-force attacks, and privilege abuse. This service provides action-oriented security alerts in Microsoft Defender for Cloud with details of the suspicious activity, guidance on how to mitigate to the threats, and options for continuing your investigations with Microsoft Sentinel. Learn more about advanced threat protection.
The Manager tool is triggering the error "Potential SQL injection attack by brute-force" during normal operations.The most frequent warnings/errors are raised while opening business role objects (it does not happen while opening Employees, Departments, Locations, CostPools).This is related to extended attributes and Manager trying to find if there are any extended attributes to be displayed for the object.Error message:"Potential SQL injection attack by brute-force, adding time penalty of 00:00:04.1320000,WHERE clause: ((UID_ExtendedAttribute in (select UID_ExtendedAttribute from ObjectHasExtendedAttributewhere ObjectKeyOfObject like '%4a283745-60ce-4457-98a8-e474fae774ee%')))"Steps to reproduce the error:1. Have at least two business roles2. Create extended attribute (it does not need to be connected to anything).3. Open the business role objects repeatedly in the overview mode.4. After 6-7 business roles the warning appears in the error log of the manager and significant performance drop can be seen (due to query time penalty)The Application Server log may also report the following error:"2020-11-18 19:42:41.8205 ERROR ( ObjectLog rhdaz1wjdfrzvwxryvqxombe) : SQL injection by brute force attack detected in WHERE clause: (filename in (N'Update.zip', N'Update.exe', N'VI.Base.dll', N'NLog.dll', N'Newtonsoft.Json.dll', N'InstallManager.Msi.dll', N'InstallManager.Core.dll')) or (filename like N'___.Update.dll')"
In this article, I will show you how to protect and leverage Advanced-Data Security (ADS) for SQL servers running on Azure VMs with Azure Security Center, and then simulate a SQL brute force attack and finally investigate the alert in Security Center as well as in Azure Sentinel.Table of Contents
Last year, Microsoft announced advanced data security for SQL servers running on Azure virtual machines. Advanced data security for SQL Servers on Azure Virtual Machines is a unified package for advanced SQL security capabilities which is in public (preview) at the time of this writing. This feature includes functionality for identifying and mitigating potential database vulnerabilities and detecting anomalous activities such as SQL injection, SQL brute force attacks that could indicate threats to your database.PrerequisitesTo follow this article, you need to have the following:
In this step, I will simulate a basic SQL brute force attack by running a PowerShell script targeting my SQL database where the MMA agent is installed and connected to Azure Security Center.Open a PowerShell session with administrative privileges on any machine that has access to the SQL server and run the following PowerShell function. Make sure to replace the server name, SQL instance name, and username with your own values:
In this article, I showed you how to protect SQL servers running on Azure IaaS VMs by leveraging Azure Security Center (Advanced Data Security), and then we simulated a brute force attack, and finally, we investigated the alert in Security Center as well as in Azure Sentinel.
WARNING: SQL Server 2005 and later versions include support for account lockoutpolicies (which are enforced on a per-user basis). If an account is locked out,the script will stop running for that instance, unless thems-sql-brute.ignore-lockout argument is used.
One can certainly attempt brute-force guessing of passwords at the mainlogin page, but many systems make an effort to detect or even preventthis. There could be logfiles, account lockouts, or other devices thatwould substantially impede our efforts, but because of the non-sanitizedinputs, we have another avenue that is much less likely to be so protected.
I am studying about cyber defense lately for fun and found about a proposed method that as I understand it performs automated SQL injection using brute force by training a model. At some point it says that if it receives input:"SELECT * FRO" it will find that the next letter is "M" and then if it receives HTTP Status 200 is good and if HTTP Status 500 is bad and will train the algorithm accordingly.
Bitdefender technology is built to detect and respond to host-based threats by analyzing the network traffic. It uses machine learning and heuristics to analyze behavior in real-time to accurately uncover malware activities like lateral movements and brute force attempts. This improves the visibility and control of host-based network threats.
It includes many services that gathered from some other tools such as Nmap, Hydra & DNS enum. This enables you to scan for open ports, start brute force FTP, SSH, and automatically determine the running service of the target server.
Patator is a brute-force tool for multi-purpose and flexible usage within a modular design. It appears in reflex frustration using some other tools and scripts of password getting attacks. Patator selects a new approach to not repeating old mistakes.
Adversaries may use brute force techniques to gain access to accounts when passwords are unknown or when password hashes are obtained. Without knowledge of the password for an account or set of accounts, an adversary may systematically guess the password using a repetitive or iterative mechanism. Brute forcing passwords can take place via interaction with a service that will check the validity of those credentials or offline against previously acquired credential data, such as password hashes.
Brute forcing credentials may take place at various points during a breach. For example, adversaries may attempt to brute force access to Valid Accounts within a victim environment leveraging knowledge gathered from other post-compromise behaviors such as OS Credential Dumping, Account Discovery, or Password Policy Discovery. Adversaries may also combine brute forcing activity with behaviors such as External Remote Services as part of Initial Access.
Set account lockout policies after a certain number of failed login attempts to prevent passwords from being guessed. Too strict a policy may create a denial of service condition and render environments un-usable, with all accounts used in the brute force being locked-out.
Monitor authentication logs for system and application login failures of Valid Accounts. If authentication failures are high, then there may be a brute force attempt to gain access to a system using legitimate credentials.
You can use Assessment settings to configure how a scan identifies vulnerabilities, as well as what vulnerabilities are identified. This includes identifying malware, assessing the vulnerability of a system to brute force attacks, and the susceptibility of web applications.
