Practical Blind-Error Based SQL Injection

Its me again! So in the previous post I talked about Blind-Error Based injection and basically showed the select query you can use to conditionally force errors while still leaking content from the database. This all happened from within a MySQL prompt, not much use to those who want to see the attack in action. Here I'm going to do just that, show you a practical example of the attack against an actual web application.

I'll be using the mod_security challenge set up by spiderlabs a about year ago. It may still ring all the mod_sec alarms but the purpose is not to threaten mod_sec---not yet---instead to show what the attack would look like in full swing.
