    • Time Based
    • Stacked Queries
  • SQL injection support for the following DBMS:
    • MySQL
    • Microsoft SQL Server
    • Postgre
    • Oracle
  • It supports the following injection types:
    • GET/POST Based injections
    • Headers Based injections
    • Cookies Based injections
    • Multipart Form data injections
    • JSON based injections
  • Supports proxy selection --proxy.
  • Supports parsing request from txt file:-r file.txt
  • Supports restricting data dump for dbs/tables/columns/dump:–start 1 –stop 2


  • Python 3
  • Python pip3
