An investigation into PL/SQL Injection.

Paterson, Ross; Leimich, Petra


Ross Paterson


SQL injection is a common attack method used to leverage infor-mation out of a database or to compromise a company’s network. This paper investigates four injection attacks that can be conducted against the PL/SQL engine of Oracle databases, comparing two recent releases (10g, 11g) of Oracle. The results of the experiments showed that both releases of Oracle were vulner-able to injection but that the injection technique often differed in the packages that it could be conducted in.
