Within the terminal window, input nmap –p 1433 --script ms-sql-xp-cmdshell,ms-sql-empty-password -p 1433 192. 168. 177. 149 to run a command at the server laptop. by way of default, the command should be ipconfig /all, yet you could switch it so that you can run one other command. it is very important word that this command shell entry is equal to commencing a command steered window at the server laptop. An instance of a component to the output from this command is proven within the following screenshot: we've nearly entire entry to this computer. in fact, it truly is operating SQL Server 2000; even if, what whether it is operating SQL Server 2005? we are going to now have a look at a home windows Server 2003 laptop. the most factor to recollect is that with SQL Server 2005, those saved tactics are disabled by way of default and the administrator should let them. additionally, the SA password must stay because the default, so if you happen to come across Server 2005, chances are you'll now not be ready to achieve the data as with an SQL Server 2000 configuration. additionally, if the password can't be made up our minds, you won't manage to execute the instructions. An instance is proven within the following screenshot the place SQL Server 2000 isn't really configured with the default password: to date, we've got purely used the scripting potential inside Nmap. We even have the aptitude for database trying out in metasploit. commence the metasploit device via coming into msfconsole in a terminal window. as soon as the metasploit device comes up, input use auxiliary/scanner/mssql/mssql_ping, then set RHOSTS and run the module. An instance of the output of the module is proven within the following screenshot: we have now information regarding the database server and the model of SQL that's operating. the subsequent factor we have to do is to work out what the configuration at the SQL Server is. within the metasploit window, input use auxiliary/scanner/mssql/mssql_login, set RHOSTS, and run the command. An instance of the output of this command is proven within the following screenshot: now we have sufficient information regarding our aim, the database it's operating, and the configuration of that database. it's time to try enumeration equipment at the database utilizing metasploit. within the metasploit window, input use auxiliary/admin/mssql/mssql_enum to enumerate information regarding the database. The output from this command is kind of broad. An instance of the 1st element of the output from this command is proven within the following screenshot: because the earlier screenshot indicates, we've been in a position to be sure a couple of configuration parameters and we now have names of the databases which have been created. An instance of one other section of the output is proven within the following screenshot: now we have a listing of the admin logins and the saved methods which are allowed by means of the database configuration. The record is truncated right here, yet you're inspired to study all the attainable kept systems so you might locate in an MSSQL database. As you could anticipate, we have now the aptitude to execute instructions utilizing those kept techniques simply as we did with Nmap.
