This lab presents a challenge in the Account All cyber range that exploits an Injection vulnerability, caused in part by improper input validation and query handling. According to OWASP.org, “Injection flaws, such as SQL, NoSQL, OS, and LDAP injection, occur when untrusted data is sent to an interpreter as part of a command or query. The attacker’s hostile data can trick the interpreter into executing unintended commands or accessing data without proper authorization.
On successful completion of this course, learners should have the knowledge and skills required to:
- Understand how adversaries can exploit interpreters that combine data with commands by crafting malicious test strings, which in many cases are widely available in free hacking tools.
