Interesting observations in an article and video Hacking is child’s play – SQL injection with Havij by 3 year old - Troy Hunt:
A quick look through YouTube and you’ll see tutorials such as SQL Injecting With Havij which is notable not for its content, but rather for its presenter. As well as the guy sounding like he's about 15 years old, it's also clear he has very little idea of what a SQL database is or even how Havij actually works. This isn't a criticism of the kid per se, it's simply an observation about how accessible tools like Havij are.
And the very true conclusion:
being a target doesn’t mean being a large multinational or supporting a cause that doesn’t sit well with hacktivists nor does it mean presenting some sort of financial upside to those who can break through your security. No, being a target means being on the internet.
All I can say is: "Amen, brother!"
