One of the most devastating and common web attacks today is SQL injections.

They have been around for years and they’ve been the result of some of the most serious data breaches in history.

Why? Because databases are at the heart of web applications, and they are filled with valuable data.

So you might think that all organizations and all web applications would make defending against these attacks a big priority, but that’s simply not the case.

SQL injections are still prevalent. In fact, an Akamai report tracking the top web attack vectors from November 2017 to March 2019 found that SQL injections represent nearly two-thirds of all web application attacks.

So, a few months ago I launched an SQL Injection Attacks course that quickly gathered over 17,000 students. Then, I started getting questions about SQLMap, so I decided to make this course.

In this course, we start out by learning what SQLMap is, then we move on to creating a home lab environment so that we can use SQLMap against vulnerable environments and find our first SQL injections. We’ll also take a look at some of the common and most useful features SQLMap has to offer for beginners.

Because I show you exactly how to set up your own home lab, you’ll be able to follow along with everything that I do. You will have the exact same environment and the exact same tools to work with that I do, and we do all of that for free.

By the way, once you complete this introductory-level course, we have a more advanced SQLMap Deep Dive course that you can check out and use to take your skills to the next level. (Might still be in development depending on when you’re watching this! But be sure to check it out)

So let’s get started and I’ll see you in the course!
