Andreas Wolter is both a Microsoft Certified Master (MCM) on SQL Server 2008 and a Microsoft Certified Solutions Master Data Platform (MCSM) SQL Server 2012 and has also been awarded with the MVP for SQL Server. He is the founder of Sarpedon Quality Lab, a Germany-based company that specializes in Development and Optimization of SQL Server Database- and Datawarehouse-architectures with focus on performance and scalability as well as a special passion for security.

In this purely demo-based session, I will show several real-life attacks, from mere reading up to disrupting service availability via various types of manual and automated SQL Injection, including a broadly unknown elevation of privileges attack.
Extended Events are replacing the old SQL Trace & Profiler, and there are many good reasons for that. In this session I want to demonstrate to you some of the best features and possibilities of this Tracing Framework.
