When outside of the C SQL API, access the data structure via the information_schema database.

  • Show Databases equivalent:
SELECT schema_name FROM information_schema.schemata;
  • Show tables equivalent:
SELECT TABLE_NAME FROM information_schema.tables WHERE table_schema=[database_name]
  • Show fields equivalent:
SELECT column_name FROM information_schema.columns WHERE TABLE_NAME=[TABLE_NAME] AND table_schema=[database_name]

If the currently selected database is the only accessible database in the context of the vulnerable query, time can be saved by using the database() function or @@database environment variables, e.g. where table_schema = database() or where table_schema = @@database.
