Nmap NSE net: ms-sql-tables

CVSS Base Vector:

Detection Type:

Queries Microsoft SQL Server (ms-sql) for a list of tables per database. The sysdatabase table should be accessible by more or less everyone The script attempts to use the sa account over any other if it has the password in the Windows Registry. If not the first account in the Windows Registry is used. Once we have a list of databases we iterate over it and attempt to extract table names. In order for this to succeed we need to have either sysadmin privileges or an account with access to the db. So, each database we successfully enumerate tables from we mark as finished, then iterate over known user accounts until either we have exhausted the users or found all tables in all the databases. Tables installed by default are excluded. SYNTAX: mssql-tables.maxdb: Limits the amount of databases that are processed and returned (default 5). If set to zero or less all databases are processed. mssql.timeout: How long to wait for SQL responses. This is a number followed by 'ms' for milliseconds, 's' for seconds, 'm' for minutes, or 'h' for hours. Default: '30s'. mssql.password: specifies the password to use to connect to the server. This option overrides any accounts found by the 'ms-sql-brute' and 'ms-sql-empty-password' scripts. mssql.username: specifies the username to use to connect to the server. This option overrides any accounts found by the 'ms-sql-brute' and 'ms-sql-empty-password' scripts. mssql-tables.keywords: If set shows only tables or columns matching the keywords mssql-tables.maxtables: Limits the amount of tables returned (default 5). If set to zero or less all tables are returned.

Vulnerability management is the process in which vulnerabilities in IT are identified and the risks of these vulnerabilities are evaluated. This evaluation leads to correcting the vulnerabilities and removing the risk or a formal risk acceptance by the management of an organization. The term vulnerability management is often confused with vulnerability scanning. Despite the fact both are related, there is an important difference between the two. Vulnerability scanning consists of using a computer program to identify vulnerabilities in networks, computer infrastructure or applications. Vulnerability management is the process surrounding vulnerability scanning, also taking into account other aspects such as risk acceptance, remediation etc. Source: "Implementing a Vulnerability Management Process".
