Microsoft SQL Server Interesting Data Finder



This module will search the specified MSSQL server for 'interesting' columns and data. The module has been tested against SQL Server 2005 but it should also work on SQL Server 2008. The module will not work against SQL Server 2000 at this time, if you are interested in supporting this platform, please contact the author.

Module Options

To display the available options, load the module within the Metasploit console and run the commands 'show options' or 'show advanced':

msf > use auxiliary/admin/mssql/mssql_idf
msf auxiliary(mssql_idf) > show actions
msf auxiliary(mssql_idf) > set ACTION < action-name >
msf auxiliary(mssql_idf) > show options
    ...show and set options...
msf auxiliary(mssql_idf) > run 

Time is precious, so I don’t want to do something manually that I can automate. Leveraging the Metasploit Framework when automating any task keeps us from having to re-create the wheel as we can use the existing libraries and focus our efforts where it matters.
