This is a vulnerable WEB application in order to understand SQL injections basics.
The front end exposes a field allowing the user to search a database and retrieve names, nicknames, mails... The user's inputs are not sanitized, allowing an attacker to inject SQL code and leak passwords.
SQL queries are logged on the backend and are also shown on the front, so that the attacker has a better understanding of what he is doing.
You may run the application under Docker containers:
You way edit
docker-compose.yml in order to tweak the following settings :
SQL_HOSTDatabase host, from the API point of view
SQL_WAITAPI waiting for that time (in seconds) before connecting to the database
The application is then accessible on http://localhost:8080/.
⚠️ Contains spoilers !
Here is an example of a working payload, exposing all passwords in the table:
nothing%" UNION SELECT pass, nickname, email FROM users#
Resulting in the following complete query:
SELECT id, nickname, email FROM users WHERE nickname LIKE "%nothing%" UNION SELECT pass, nickname, email FROM users#%"
