#2 Sounds like a bit of a dumb/naive script kiddy.

Here's a simple explanation of the "attacks".

The first shows how you to mess about/hijack a users session cookie, because the website wasn't written properly.


This one shows the more technical SQL injection.


But the DB should only be visible to the web-server, and the web-server should only be visible on port 80(443 HTTPS), and should be behind a hardware reverse proxy/filter.

Someone's done a shitty job architecting the sites.

#7 Just remember, that its OK when the NSA does it without a wire tap warrant to your ISP or PC. Flash that Get Out of Jail Free National Security card and voila.
