This lab contains an SQL injection vulnerability in the product category filter. The results from the query are returned in the application's response so you can use a UNION attack to retrieve data from other tables.
The application has a login function, and the database contains a table that holds usernames and passwords. You need to determine the name of this table and the columns it contains, then retrieve the contents of the table to obtain the username and password of all users.
To solve the lab, log in as the administrator user.
Use the following payload to retrieve the list of tables in the database: '+UNION+SELECT+table_name,+NULL+FROM+information_schema.tables--
Find the name of the table containing user credentials.
Use a payload like the following (replacing the table name) to retrieve the details of the columns in the table: '+UNION+SELECT+column_name,+NULL+FROM+information_schema.columns+WHERE+table_name='USERS_ABCDEF'--
Find the names of the columns containing usernames and passwords.
Use a payload like the following (replacing the table and column names) to retrieve the usernames and passwords for all users: '+UNION+SELECT+USERNAME_ABCDEF,+PASSWORD_ABCDEF+FROM+USERS_ABCDEF--
Find the password for the administrator user, and use it to log in.
