Automatic SQL Injection And Database Takeover With SQLMap 0.9

sqlmap is an open source SQL injection penetration testing tool that automates the process of detecting and exploiting SQL injection flaws and taking over of database servers. SQLMap consists of a very accurate detection engine, many niche features for the ultimate penetration tester and a broad range of switches lasting from database fingerprinting, over data fetching from the database, to accessing the underlying file system and executing commands on the operating system via out-of-band connections.

SQLMap v. 0.9 is out on April 10, 2011 and now consists of more features than ever with numerous improvements in coding. This time the SQL Injection engine has been re-written in v. 0.9 and the tool will be very useful for security experts, enthusiasts and hackers. The feature list of SQLMap is available over HERE.
