RE: database server audit tools

Hello Paavan, suggestions and comments inline to Mr. Martin's email:


-Appsecinc's AppDetective for (insert DB), has a "pen test mode", sort of a brute-force, table-reader
type thing; lots of config options here

-NGS Squirrel for (insert DB), mostly a vuln scanner, very fast, cost effective

-Both Impact and CANVAS have DB exploits, though their focus is not DB auditing.

ISS's DB scanner is dead.


Metacoretex looked like it had promise, but both plug-in and framework development appears dead now:

Metasploit and the Securityforest Exploittree both have DB exploit code. Metasploit gives you control
over payload, but does not have many DB exploits.

Pete Finnigan also keeps a nice list of tools, though many are gone/dead/no longer in active dev:



The Database Hacker's Handbook is another good resource.

Some loose tools:
-  ATK (free)

This is a sort of like Impact, CANVAS, Metasploit, or ExploitTree, but old and irrelevant for DBs

-  Acunetix Web Scanner (free but exists a trial version)

??? This thing was pretty limited last time I looked at it, and had no database audit capabilities.

-  Absinthe

Formerly SQLSqueal, this is a nice SQL injection testing tool. SPI Dynamics also makes a
SQL injection testing tool.
