4. SQL Inject Me

SQL Inject Me is the Exploit-Me tool used to test for SQL Injection vulnerabilities.
The tool works by submitting your HTML forms and substituting the form value with strings that are representative of an SQL Injection attack.
The tool works by sending database escape strings through the form fields. It then looks for database error messages that are output into the rendered HTML of the page.
The tool does not attempting to compromise the security of the given system. It looks for possible entry points for an attack against the system. There is no port scanning, packet sniffing, password hacking or firewall attacks done by the tool.
You can think of the work done by the tool as the same as the QA testers for the site manually entering all of these strings into the form fields.

RESTClient supports all HTTP methods RFC2616 (HTTP/1.1) and RFC2518 (WebDAV). You can construct custom HTTP request (custom method with resources URI and HTTP request Body) to directly test requests against a server.
