An advanced cross-platform tool that automates the process of detecting and exploiting SQL injection security flaws


  • Python 3
  • Python pip3


  • cd to ghauri directory.
  • install requirements: python3 -m pip install --upgrade -r requirements.txt
  • run: python3 install or python3 -m pip install -e .
  • you will be able to access and run the ghauri with simple ghauri --help command.

Advanced Usage

Author: Nasir khan (r0ot h3x49)

usage: ghauri -u URL [OPTIONS]

A cross-platform python based advanced sql injections detection & exploitation tool.

-h, --help Shows the help.
--version Shows the version.
-v VERBOSE Verbosity level: 1-5 (default 1).
--batch Never ask for user input, use the default behavior
--flush-session Flush session files for current target

At least one of these options has to be provided to define the

-u URL, --url URL Target URL (e.g. '
-r REQUESTFILE Load HTTP request from a file

These options can be used to specify how to connect to the target URL

-A , --user-agent HTTP User-Agent header value -H , --header Extra header (e.g. "X-Forwarded-For:")
--host HTTP Host header value
--data Data string to be sent through POST (e.g. "id=1")
--cookie HTTP Cookie header value (e.g. "PHPSESSID=a8d127e..")
--referer HTTP Referer header value
--headers Extra headers (e.g. "Accept-Language: fr\nETag: 123")
--proxy Use a proxy to connect to the target URL
--delay Delay in seconds between each HTTP request
--timeout Seconds to wait before timeout connection (default 30)
--retries Retries when the connection related error occurs (default 3)
--skip-urlencode Skip URL encoding of payload data
--force-ssl Force usage of SSL/HTTPS

These options can be used to specify which paramete rs to test for,
provide custom injection payloads and optional tampering scripts

-p TESTPARAMETER Testable parameter(s)
--dbms DBMS Force back-end DBMS to provided value
--prefix Injection payload prefix string
--suffix Injection payload suffix string

These options can be used to customize the detection phase

--level LEVEL Level of tests to perform (1-3, default 1)
--code CODE HTTP code to match when query is evaluated to True
--string String to match when query is evaluated to True
--not-string String to match when query is evaluated to False
--text-only Compare pages based only on the textual content

These options can be used to tweak testing of specific SQL injection

--technique TECH SQL injection techniques to use (default "BEST")
--time-sec TIMESEC Seconds to delay the DBMS response (default 5)

These options can be used to enumerate the back-end database
managment system information, structure and data contained in the

-b, --banner Retrieve DBMS banner
--current-user Retrieve DBMS current user
--current-db Retrieve DBMS current database
--hostname Retrieve DBMS server hostname
--dbs Enumerate DBMS databases
--tables Enumerate DBMS database tables
--columns Enumerate DBMS database table columns
--dump Dump DBMS database table entries
-D DB DBMS database to enumerate
-T TBL DBMS database tables(s) to enumerate
-C COLS DBMS database table column(s) to enumerate
--start Retrive entries from offset for dbs/tables/columns/dump
--stop Retrive entries till offset for dbs/tables/columns/dump

ghauri --dbs
