The best idea would be to run multiple tools, but this isn’t always the most financially acceptable solution. My quick two cents is that if you are going to purchase a single license, I would recommend getting Tenable’s Nessus Vulnerability Scanner. For the number of IPs you can scan and the cost ($1,500), it is the most reasonable. I have found that a single consultant license of Nexpose is double the price and limited on the number of IPs you can scan, but I’d ask you to verify, as you never know that prices might change.

There are many different types of vulnerabilities identified from a scanner, but I’ll go over two of the standard ways to exploit common vulnerabilities. This section is going to be more of a high level view, because if I were to focus on every type of vulnerability this book would become extremely long. This book is also assuming you have some experience with exploitation and this should hopefully just be a refresher. Whether you use Nexpose or Nessus (or any other vulnerability scanner), it might not make a difference on the exploiting process.

Taking a look at the help file with the -h switch, we can see all the different functionality Sqlninja has.
