 * You must have ALTER permissions to exploit this bug!
 * Scenario: You found SQL injection, but you want to punch backend server
 * in the nuts just for fun.  Start with the ALTER TABLE statement on
 * a table and field you know to exist.  The first two SQL statements are
 * simply to demostrate reproducibility...
