smupcheck, which stands for Smart Update Checker, checks Web sites for updates automatically, even if they don't offer an RSS feed. It is a very basic tool, and does not offer advanced features such as checking password-protected Web sites, highlighting changes, or filtering results.
mylbhelper helps dumb load balancers do their job. It monitors a local MySQL instance by periodically issuing a query. Should the query fail, a custom script, which typically would firewall off the load balancer, is executed. Likewise, when it comes back up, another script is executed. This means you can use any load balancer capable of distributing TCP traffic rather than one natively capable of talking MySQL. mylbhelper can also act solely as a monitoring daemon.
JdbcTool is a collection of command line utilities for making your life easier when working with Java JDBC databases. Included is jdbctool, an interactive command line tool for executing SQL statements, jdbcdump, which dumps the contents of a database as SQL statements into a file, like mysqldump, and jdbcload, which executes SQL statements from a file (the opposite of jdbcdump).
Oracle online (hot) backup script is a multi-platform, storage independent, safe, and flexible online physical backup script for Oracle databases (of any version). It features database checks before backup; dynamic backup of instance datafiles, archives, and configuration files; extensive error detection over all steps involved in the process; a clean and easy-to-read log with timestamps for each step; detailed error messages for troubleshooting; and more.
SQLIer takes an URL vulnerable to SQL injection attacks and attempts to determine all of the necessary information to build and exploit an SQL injection hole by itself. It requires no user interaction unless it can't guess the table/field names correctly. By doing so, it can build a UNION SELECT query designed to brute force passwords out of the database. It does not use quotes in the exploit, meaning it will work for a wider range of sites. An 8 character password (containing any character from decimal ASCII code 1-127) takes approximately one minute to crack.
DBAShell is a project based around Shell functions and scripts designed to make it easy for DBAs to use databases in a command line environment. It offers automatic setting of environment variables, functions to run scripts, store and provide script passwords, check database status, stop/start databases, run script commands in a parallel, compile all database objects, etc. Currently supported is Oracle with ksh and bash on AIX, Solaris, and Linux. The code base itself is 3 years old and has been in use in production environments the entire time.
