A Deep Dive into Database Attacks [Part I]: SQL Obfuscation
Quote:
Today, data breaches are a threat to every organization. According to a report from Risk Based Security covering the first half of 2017, over 6 billion records were exposed through 2,227 publicly-disclosed data breaches. The number of exposed records is already higher than the previous all-time high at the end of 2016.

An organization’s database servers are often the primary targets of external and internal attackers. We recently embarked on a new research project we named StickyDB to learn more about database hacking – understand common database attacks, tools and techniques employed by attackers, how they gain access, what their actions are once inside, what their end goal is and more.

To conduct this research, we established a honeypot net for popular SQL/NoSQL databases like Microsoft SQL Server, MySQL, Oracle, and MongoDB and then monitored access to these databases over a period of six months. To make life easier (and more attractive) for invaders, we configured our database honeypots with weak default credentials and vulnerable web applications at the front-end.

The more I read about compute security, the more I want to live off the land :)

Do you mean live on a boat or oil platform, or do you mean revert to paleo-living.
