Ready to challenge your skills? Getting ready for a CTF or a Cyber Challenge?

Train With CyberQ Skill Pack Challenges

CyberQ Skillpacks are designed to test your skills in a variety of different challenges with limited guidance. Each challenge runs independently as its own “Self-Paced Capture the Flag.” Launching a Skill Pack challenge will reserve your very own space in our CyberQ Data Center, we will raise the Attack Console, as well as the down-range vulnerable targets for you to practice and challenge your skills.


Each challenge includes a set of distinct challenge flags, in order to solve the flags you must perform a variety of procedures in the target environment including basic host discovery, service discovery, vulnerability analysis, attack procedures, privilege escalation, and more.


Please note, this is not a learning lab. Skill packs are designed intentionally with challenges, puzzles, and preconfigured targets that will test your ability to identify, analyze, exploit, and own the targets. If you are new to Cyber and have never participated in a cyber challenge or competition, Skill packs may be too advanced. So, feel free to browse our learning productsif this describes you, however, if you are ready for a challenge, enjoy solving complex puzzles and testing your limits, CyberQ challenges are a great way to hone your trade craft.

SQL Injection Techniques Skill Pack

This Skill Pack will challenge your skills in salient SQL Injection Techniques including Error-based SQL Injection, Boolean SQL Injection, Time-based Blind SQLi, SQLi through sqlmap, Metasploit Exploit, and SQLi through Burpsuite and sqlmap.

Each challenge contains a fully designed target network with live virtual machines, servers, web hosts, and vulnerable sites and applications. Launching a challenge will open the CyberQ Console and safely connect you to our live attack environment right through your browser. Depending on the challenge, you will land in your attack machine, either Kali or Parrot, where you will have instant access to the full suite of attack tools required to carry out your challenge. Targets are preconfigured with host and application vulnerabilities which you will uncover as you progress through the challenges. CyberQ is a fully automated Cyber Range platform providing you with a self-driven ‘Capture-the-flag‘ experience in each challenge.

About SQL Injection Skill Pack

SQL injection attacks use a series of malicious SQL queries or SQL statements to manipulate the database directly. An application often uses SQL statements to authenticate users to the application, validate roles and access levels, store and obtain information for the application and user, and link to other data sources. SQL injection attacks work because the application does not properly validate an input before passing it to an SQL statement.

SQL injection is a major issue for all database-driven websites. An attack can be attempted on any normal website or software package based on how it is used and how it processes user supplied data. SQL injection can be used to implement the following attacks:

The different types of steganography are as follows:

  • 03 Tick iconAuthentication Bypass: Using this attack, an attacker logs onto an application without providing a valid username and password, and gains administrative privileges.
  • 03 Tick iconAuthorization Bypass: Using this attack, an attacker alters authorization information stored in the database by exploiting an SQL injection vulnerability.
  • 03 Tick iconInformation Disclosure: Using this attack, an attacker obtains sensitive information that is stored in the database.
  • 03 Tick iconCompromised Data Integrity: Using this attack, an attacker defaces a web page, inserts malicious content into web pages, or alters the contents of a database.
  • 03 Tick iconCompromised Availability of Data: Using this attack, an attacker deletes the database information, delete logs, or audit information stored in a database.
  • 03 Tick iconRemote Code Execution: Using this attack, an attacker compromises the host OS.

The different types of SQL injection are as follows:

  • 03 Tick iconError-based SQL Injection
    An attacker intentionally inserts bad inputs into an application, causing it to return database errors. The attacker reads the resulting database-level error messages to find an SQL injection vulnerability in the application.
  • 03 Tick iconUnion SQL Injection
    In a UNION SQL injection, an attacker combines a forged query with a query requested by the user using a UNION clause. The result of the forged query will be appended the result of the original query, which makes it possible to obtain the values of fields from other tables.
  • 03 Tick iconBlind/Inferential SQL Injection
    In blind/inferential injection, the attacker has no error messages from the system to work on. Instead, the attacker simply sends a malicious SQL query to the database.
  • 03 Tick iconBoolean-based blind SQL injection
    Boolean-based blind SQL injection is performed by asking the right questions to the application database. Multiple valid statements evaluated as true or false are supplied in the affected parameter in the HTTP request.

SQL Injection Techniques Covered in the Skill Pack:

  • 03 Tick iconError-based SQL Injection
  • 03 Tick iconBoolean SQL Injection
  • 03 Tick iconTime-based Blind SQLi
  • 03 Tick iconSQLi through sqlmap
  • 03 Tick iconMetasploit Exploit
  • 03 Tick iconSQLi through Burpsuite and sqlmap
