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.
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.
Larbin is a Web crawler intended to fetch a large number of Web pages to fill the database of a search engine.
