We gathered all the reading materials from the course “Web Application Hacking: Advanced SQL Injection and Data Store Attacks” and prepared a stand alone ebook. While reading this workshop you will examine how SQL and Data stores work in a web server, and you will be introduced to data store attacking and several injection methods with practical examples. You will dive deep into SQL Injection with advanced ways and you will see ways to encrypt your attacks to make it more effective.
Note: Some of the original course materials, like videos or particular exercises, are not presented in this issue. If you would like to gain access to all the materials, you have to enroll in the course.
The main aim of this e-book is to present our publication to a wider range of readers. We want to share the material we worked on and we hope we can meet your expectations.
Enjoy your reading,
