Re: SFX-SQLi: A new SQL injection technique for MSSQL (dumps a table in one request!)

Apparently the concept has been known to white hats as well, for some time.

Dennis Hurst from HP has this blog entry from December 2007:

In it, there's a link to a presentation he gave at Project Management

In it, it's pretty clear that Dennis was aware of the "SELECT ... FOR
XML" trick at that time, and he also probably demonstrated it in
public. One of his slides reads as following:

(how to do this:' union select 1,1,(select * from
customers for xml auto) from sysobjects where '' = ')

I hope that settles it...
