Automated SQL injection vulnerability scanner

SQL injection is one of the most prevalent hacking methods for web applications. SQL injection vulnerabilities can be exploited by attackers to gain unauthorized access to an application’s database contents and potentially the underlying operating system, which is why regular SQL injection scanning is essential. Intruder’s automated SQL injection scanner makes it easy to continuously find these vulnerabilities and keep your apps secure.

The first thing you need to do is add your applications as targets by entering the IP addresses or URLs. You can then kick off your first scan in just a few clicks – it’s that simple!

Once your scan is complete, you will see a list of issues. You can search for ‘SQL injection’ in the search bar to see if this type of vulnerability is present, and if so, which target(s) it affects.  

What are the risks associated with SQL injection vulnerabilities?
faq arrow

If your application is vulnerable to a SQL injection attack, potential risks include:

  1. Extraction of data from your system's database, such as usernames and passwords
  1. Remote execution of code, leading to full control over your server
  1. Reading, writing, and deleting content within your database
What is a SQL injection vulnerability?
faq arrow

SQL injection is a type of hacking technique where an attacker on the internet can gain unauthorized access and read or alter the data contained in a web application's database.

This often occurs when unchecked input from the user is sent straight to the database and executed. From a single SQL injection vulnerability, it is usually possible to retrieve the entire contents of all databases that the database user running the vulnerable query has access to.

SQL injection is one of the most common ways that web applications are hacked, and is included in the OWASP Top 10 as one of the most critical types of web app vulnerabilities.
