Web Software Architecture and Engineering – Life on the Bleeding Edge

QA is working on hacking our system running the full gamut of security concerns (without costing much money). We’re not looking to hiring an outside firm, just yet.
And one of the things we are having a hard time finding is a tool that test for SQL Injection. Most of what we’ve found is overly complex or simply outdated.
Does anyone know of any tool – simple and easy to use, that can run through a site attempting all sorts of sql injection attacks?


Comments on: "Need Help : SQL Injection Tools" (9)

  1. @Tony,

    Like I said, we are looking for a tool my QA folks can use. Pete’s service is what I mentioned in my post as being out of scope for now.

  2. HP’s Scrawlr app is free and pretty easy to use. It’s not as good as a real penetration test by a security professional, but it will catch a fair amount of stuff.


    BTW… this captcha friggin blows. Too complicated.
    There are also a number of free tools from Foundstone that can run various security tests.

  3. @JC,

    I believe we eval’ed the HP tool, and found it to support ASP, and no ColdFusion.

  4. Scrawlr worked fine for coldfusion when I used it. It’s platform agnostic, just uses common injection techniques.

    If you’re using MSSQL, CF isn’t very susceptible to SQL injection (because there’s only one escape character and it’s handled by CF, so only unquoted numerics are dangerous). But there’s no reason to not use CFQueryparams to protect yourself properly.

    You could also poke around on some of the shadier locations on the internet and find some of the actual tools used by real hackers, which aren’t always the same as the more legitimate security tools. I’d strongly suggest doing any of that from within a virtual machine though.

  5. When publishing an application to salesForce they require your application to be tested by PortSwigger.net
    Which I believe handles SQL injection
