In this challenge, we delve into an SQL injection vulnerability within a login form that employs double quotes to delimit strings. The lab builds upon the concepts covered in SQL Injection 01, focusing on how to adapt and craft payloads to exploit this specific variation. By understanding the PHP code generating the SQL query and the way it handles user inputs, you can manipulate the query to bypass authentication.

The PHP code uses double quotes around strings in the SQL query, which requires specific payload adjustments to avoid syntax errors and successfully inject malicious SQL code. The goal is to execute an SQL query that always returns true, thereby gaining unauthorized access. This lab emphasizes the importance of recognizing different quoting mechanisms in SQL injection attacks and how to exploit them effectively.
