Havij is an automated SQL injection tool. To say in the own words of its creators,
” Havij is an automated SQL Injection tool that helps penetration testers to find and exploit SQL Injection vulnerabilities on a web page. It can take advantage of a vulnerable web application. By using this software, user can perform back-end database fingerprinting, retrieve DBMS login names and password hashes, dump tables and columns, fetch data from the database, execute SQL statements against the server, and even access the underlying file system and execute operating system shell commands. ”
It is available both in free and commercial versions. Today we are going to see how to dump the contents of a database using Havij. For this I am going to use the free version. First download Havij from here and install it. Then open it and enter the vulnerable page url in the target column ( for this tut I am using my own vulnerable webpage ).
Set the database option to ‘auto detect‘ and hit analyze. This should show you the current database name as shown below.
Click on the “info” tab. This will show you information about the victim’s system. We can see information like Host IP address, web server version etc.
Click on the “Tables” tab.
Click on “Get DBs” option. This will list all the databases as shown below.
To get tables in a specific database, select the database and click on “Get Tables”. This will list all the tables present in the selected database. I selected database “shunya” here.
We can see that there is on table ‘users’ in our database ‘shunya’ .To get columns , select the table ‘ users’ and click on “Get Columns”.
This will list all the columns in the table. We can see that we have five columns in the table ‘users’.all the columns. It’s time to dump the values of columns. Select the columns whose data we want to dump and click on “Get data”. Here I selected all the columns.
We got all the data including usernames and passwords. But passwords seem to be encrypted. No problem. Click on the password hashes and copy them. Then click on “MD5″ tab and paste the password. Click on “Start”. Havij automatically decrypts the password for us. Decrypt all passwords in the similar manner.
Click on “Find admin”. This option finds the admin page of the website automatically. When it finds the admin page, you can try the username and passwords to get access to the website. Hope this was helpful.
Here’s a video version of this howto.
